We also have volunteer opportunities for members of our US community in many Akanksha schools in Mumbai and Pune. In order to make sure the experience is meaningful for everyone involved, we ask that the volunteer:
- is at least 16 years old
- is able to volunteer for a minimum of three weeks
- provides their own lodging and transportation to and from the school
To find out more about volunteer opportunities, contact Development Manager, Meghan McNamara.
Hear what one of our volunteers had to say about her experience:
“My experience volunteering at an Akanksha school will forever stay with me. I was able to work closely with the students and art teacher, helping the students make art for Akanksha and exposing them to fine arts. It was one of the first opportunities I had to work so closely with an education non-profit, and the teachers, students and Akanksha employees all inspired me to want to pursue a career in non-profit work and public service.”
