Many volunteers especially those who are first in
volunteering don’t have any experience related to the program they like to
participate in. Many of them are still studying or are into a different field
of practice than their chosen volunteer program. But this is acceptable for
some programs that do not have special requirements such as educational
background or past work experience in related fields.
If ever you like to volunteer and would like to have freedom
in choosing the program or project you want to be involved in, India can be one
of the best destinations for you. There are several programs offered in India that
is open to all interested volunteers who are able to meet the minimum age
requirement of 17 or 18 years old:
1. English Teaching Program
Some people thought that you have to be a student taking up
a teaching degree or a professional teacher if you want to be a part of the teaching
volunteer programs India. But this is not true in most cases. You can be a
volunteer teacher as long as you are fluent in English and are able to meet the
age requirement which is generally 18 years old. Under this program, you can be
assigned to teach elementary or high school students. You can have freedom on
how you can help your student improve their proficiency in English or in other
subjects such as Geography. You can also use your own visual aids or plan a
special interactive activity that promotes learning.
2. Orphanage Program
The orphanage program is another program that is open to
anyone who has the passion in caring for children. Many orphanages in India
need additional staff for the day-to-day tasks such as preparing meals, feeding
small children, entertaining children and helping them with school projects.
Orphanage volunteers may find many of their tasks to be challenging at first,
but as you continue on with the program, you will see that it can also be the
most rewarding one.

India, particularly in the town of Palampur can also give a challenging
experience for volunteers. You can participate in this program as long as you
are willing to take the extra challenge. Participants of this program will
assist disabled children in their daily life. You can give them assistance in
