Why join our team?
From being a Session Buddy to interning with us, and everything in between, there is something for everyone at KEEN. As thousands of former Session Buddies, Leaders, and other team members would tell you, KEEN is fantastic fun, often hilarious, the basis for many lifetime friendships, and a simply awesome life experience!

Who is on our team?
Our friendly and welcoming community is a varied mix people from all kinds of backgrounds and walks of life. Our current team is made up mainly of the following groups:
University Students: KEEN was originally set up by university students (find out more about our history here), and the two universities in Oxford remain an awesome source of amazing team members. We welcome around 200 university students to KEEN each year!
College and Sixth Form Students: As well as university students, lots of 16+ students from local schools and colleges join us too!
Non-students: KEEN is not just for students, far from it! We have a friendly and active community of non-students who also get involved. In 2019/20, we’ll be adding more social opportunities for this group to meet and get to know each other outside of our sessions.
How do I join?
Trying out KEEN is very easy.
No long paperwork required, or a long wait before coming along, just subscribe to our weekly team bulletin here! Once you start receiving this you’ll be able to see what’s on each week and use it to sign-up to join one of our session teams.
One of the unique aspects of participating with KEEN as a buddy is the flexibility, we try to work around you and your other commitments as much as possible, whether they be work or study related, or otherwise. If you do decide to continue coming, we will guide you through the rest of the simple registration process, including completing a DBS check and having the chance to take a free online Safeguarding course.
