Volunteers have been at the core of PEARL’s work since our inception in 2005. PEARL is operated by a broad community volunteers, and a few staff. Our volunteers have contributed to all levels of our work, including our highest leadership bodies. Volunteers have had the opportunity to engage in advocacy work with national governments and intergovernmental organizations, contributed to research, planned conferences, presented at panels on our behalf, supported our operations and governance, and so much more. At PEARL, we aim to empower individuals to engage in critical human rights work at their fullest capacity. If you are interested in getting involved, please fill out the form below.
