How to Get Involved

GE's volunteer programmes offer something for everyone from senior leaders to new hires.

Our main focus is education, but other priorities are health, the environment and community development, depending on business and local community needs. Each GE site has a volunteer leader to oversee their community investment activities.

Take a look Around the UK to get a flavour for the types of project taking place.

Some GE volunteers projects won't require funding, while others can be funded by the local GE businesses. However, there are Community Investment Grants available to support ambitious projects that involve plenty of volunteers. Planned projects should aim to make a demonstrable impact on people's lives in areas such as: access to education, improved health and wellbeing, greater social mobility, enhanced urban or rural environments, more opportunities to work and better community provision.

Read grant guidelines to check eligibility before you draft an application.
Plan your project in conjunction with your non-profit partner.

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
