Sangam Volunteers

Be A Volunteer Monsoon Vols and Intern 2013

Have you ever ridden an elephant, watched the sun rise from atop a water tower, or danced to a Bollywood beat until your feet were sore? These—and more—are the experiences you can look forward to as a Sangam Volunteer at Sangam World Centre in Pune, India. This amazing opportunity for self-development offers young women the chance to live abroad, gain personal and professional experience, work in a multicultural atmosphere and enjoy the friendship and fun of international Guiding and Scouting.

Sangam Volunteers are responsible for the development and delivery of Sangam’s international events. They run sessions on Indian culture and the latest WAGGGS developments; lead tours around the local neighborhood and Pune’s city centre; contribute to community leadership work at Sangam’s Community Partner organizations; support the day-to-day running of the World Centre; and, throughout all of these tasks, serve as representatives of Sangam and the Sangam experience to the many international guests who visit Sangam. Essential to the fulfillment of the WAGGGS mission—enabling girls and young women to develop their fullest potential as citizens of the world—Sangam Volunteers come prepared to give service to both the local community and Guides and Scouts from around the world by sharing their skills and expertise.
