Volunteering Resources


The OR Society relies on the support of volunteers in many areas, including its board, general council and supporting committees. However, this section is primarily dedicated towards volunteers wishing to support our OR in Schools initiative and our Pro Bono OR programme.

OR in Schools

The OR in Schools programme enables schools to draw support from the operational research community to help them communicate the importance of maths, OR and STEM subjects to their students. 

Full details of our OR in Schools initiative can be found in the What We Do area of our website.

Pro Bono OR

Our Pro Bono OR scheme connects volunteer analysts with good causes for short but highly impactful projects. Volunteering will give you the opportunity to cultivate your skills and practice them in a wider arena whilst helping third sector organisation improve their operations with OR.

Full details of our Pro Bono OR scheme can be found in the Pro Bono area of our website.
