The Sangam Community Programme offers participants a unique, high-quality volunteer experience.
Sangam is affiliated with over a dozen non-governmental orgaizations, many of whom have longstanding relationships with the Community Programme. Sangam will match your specific skill set with the organization where you can make the most impact and also challenge yourself.
Choose Your Experience
Sangam offers two forms of the Community Programme, one running for 12 weeks and the other 4 weeks.
The 12 week programme-Immerse Yourself
- Gain work experience in an international setting
- Great for a gap year, sabbatical, or after retirement
- Create lasting change in your partner organization
The 4 week programme-A Taste of India
- Jump right in and get the most from your experience
- Great for working professionals, current students, or school break
- Come during the 12 week session--a built in support system!
Both programmes offer the opportunity to volunteer with one of Sangam’s Community Partner organizations and live at Sangam in the company of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts from across the world!
A World of Support
Sangam’s Community Programme is unique to many other volunteer programmes in India because of its setting in an international Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting centre.
The Community Programme is supported by a team of caring, dedicated staff and volunteers living on-site at Sangam. Staff are available 24 hours a day for support and advice, are eager to foster your discovery of India, and encourage you to explore, ask questions, and learn.
Only at Sangam can you live and work with Guides and Girl Scouts from all over the world, enjoying the camaraderie of working on Community Partner sites, trips to local markets, exploring India, discussing culture, sharing international friendship all while experiencing Indian culture. What’s more, a long history of community connections means that Sangam can introduce you to local people and engage you in the community, helping you to live an experience that goes far beyond tourism.
Scholarships and financial assistance are available and open to anyone interested in taking part in the unforgettable Tare experience.
