Journey to Justice

Volunteer Stories

Tania Aubeelack

Tania found Journey to Justice thanks to good fortune for us. In the summer of 2016 her father took a flyer from young people who were promoting our work as part of their NCS (National Citizen Service) project in Wood Green High Street. He passed it to Tania who has been a most dedicated volunteer with us ever since. Her activities with JtoJ include: organising two music fundraising events which introduced us to many talented performers; running training workshops in schools, colleges and community settings in order to embed our approach in their work; briefing JtoJ volunteers in Bristol; co-ordinating PR; speaking at events and inspiring and recruiting new members. Tania was our superb Coordinator for London volunteers in 2018, supporting, developing and managing their time with us.

Tania was also a volunteer with Diabetes UK and Shelter.

Hana Bellin, JtoJ Intern, February – April 2018

Hana was an intern with JtoJ for three months in 2018 when she was a student at California State University Fullerton as part of her time in the UK with AIFS (American Institute for Foreign Study). She majored in American Studies with a particular interest in social justice. Hana volunteered in community service projects in the Dominican Republic, Peru and Costa Rica and taught in a Jewish-Arab school, Project Harmony, in Israel. She worked with JtoJ in a number of ways including writing blogs, planning our social media for the Newham JtoJ Music and Freedom Project, advising on our website content, interviewing volunteers and helping at events and with our travelling exhibition at Beckton Globe Library. Thank you Hana.
