Community Volunteer in India

From classroom teaching to vocational training this amazing programme is an opportunity to use all your skills.


This programme will allow volunteers the chance to work not only with our amazing partner schools in Palampur, but also out with the local community. Volunteers will bring a a range of different skills and interests which they can teach and talk about with local members of the community. For example, you may be able to run workshops with young adults to educate them on a variety of vocational skills that can secure them skilled employment. 

Your role: There are many things for you to get involved in at these schools and your role really depends on where your skills and interests lie. Those interested in teaching can assist in the classroom, working alongside the existing teaching staff to enhance the quality of education and improve materials. You can also help out in the computer lab, imparting your computer skills and knowledge to children and older members of the community. Arts & crafts, dance, music and drama are also used for teaching and therapeutic purposes.

This project is especially good for volunteers with their own special interests or skills, as there is a wide variety of vocational training happening in Palampur. You could divide your time between teaching and these other programmes. This really is an exceptional opportunity for your gap year. Get involved in a variety of areas and use your creative skills to the maximum.

What you gain: This is a fantastic gap year opportunity for anyone who enjoys working with children and young adults and also with any special skills to impart. It is also an incredibly rewarding experience to be able to help provide a quality education to disadvantaged children.

Working in an environment with a mix of backgrounds and abilities will give you a perspective on the challenges that India as a nation faces in tackling so many development issues.
