This program is designed for people who are looking to take a gap year or sabbatical from their professional life in order to travel, contribute with their experiences and knowledge in a particular community, and gain international development experience. Volunteers have the choice of living in our centre locations in Leh-Ladakh, Himachal Pradesh, Rajasthan, and Gokarna. The volunteer has the opportunity to experience a new environment and learn about the cultural diversity of the area that he / she is visiting.
Our professional volunteer program ranges from 2 to 52 weeks and are offered year-round. Program areas of focus include: education, environmental awareness, healthcare, micro-empowerment, teaching, and various technical positions such as project management, IT, PR and more.
Volunteers of all ages, nationalities and backgrounds are invited to join career break programs
Short-term volunteer-travelers can arrive on travel visa while long-term volunteers will need our sponsored employment visa to be placed within existing project teams. If the volunteers are coming to work on some of our associate projects as part of their travel in India, then we can make endeavours for them to be facilitated under our Eco Volunteer Travel program. Building upon their existing experience, they will have the opportunity to interact with and provide professional support and supervision to the local and international interns. They work closely with Project Director, Assistant Director and Program Coordinators and partners, collaborate with volunteers and interns and utilise skills in program implementation and project management.
