LSE students are passionate about a diverse range of causes, from issues affecting their home town to wider concerns about the global community. Many students volunteer their time during their studies in a variety of ways.
LSE Volunteer Centre
If you would like to make a difference in the world, develop skills for your future career, and establish new friendships, consider volunteering.
Part of LSE Careers, the LSE Volunteer Centre advertises a range of regular and one-off opportunities within charities and not-for-profit organisations based in London and overseas. Students can also book one-to-one discussions for advice on finding a voluntary role.
RAG (Raising and Giving)
LSESU RAG is the fundraising arm of the Students’ Union. RAG organises a full programme of events and challenges, including overseas treks, hitch hikes, balls, extreme sports, pub quizzes, and an annual RAG Week, to raise money for charities that students have voted to give their support to each year.
LSESU has several societies devoted to charity work and fundraising. From Amnesty International to Student Action for Refugees to Sustainable Futures, these societies enable students to raise the profile of global issues on campus.
