Volunteers and interns are invaluable assets in helping us fulfil our twin goals of equity and inclusion in society. – Team Amrit
Volunteer or Intern at Amrit! By sharing your time, energy and skills with Amrit Foundation, you can help change the lives of children with the challenges posed by Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome and Intellectual Disability.
The internship / volunteer program at the Amrit Foundation of India is designed to offer exposure to students and working professionals from varied academic and professional backgrounds. It is an opportunity for self-driven individuals to transform their passion into results and become a part of the effort to ensure a lasting change for children with intellectual and development challenges.
At Amrit, we believe in the inclusion of all individuals irrespective of their caste, creed, religion, sex or challenge. We use the word ‘challenge’ rather than ‘disability’ because we believe that when a person has a special need – any special need – these become challenges when society does not make room for these need. In keeping with our vision, we encourage people with the challenges posed by intellectual and development to apply for internships or to be a volunteer and be a part of the organization.
The design of an internship / volunteer program depends on both the interest and skill areas of the interns as well as requirements of the organization. The program gives you a chance to explore and contribute towards the important aspects of running the organization. You can choose to be a part of activities ranging from public mobilization, research, field exposures, documentation to piloting project ideas, organizing events or even putting into action your media advocacy skills. Volunteering/ interning is a great way to meet new people who think and feel like you. It can help you build on existing experience, learn new skills and enhance your CV.
This is an intensive engagement and no stipend is offered. The incidental costs pertaining to the assignment may be covered.
We have opportunities to suit all interests and skills. If you’re interested in:
