Sangam India - Community Programme (2017 & 2018)

 

The Sangam Community Programme offers participants a unique, high-quality volunteer experience. Tare means ‘star’ in Hindi, and as part of the Community Programme, you become the Stars of the Sangam family.

Step outside your comfort zone and connect with India and yourself through Sangam’s Community Programme. Work four days a week with one of Sangam’s Community Partner organizations. Spend one day a week learning about the culture of Pune and India. Participate in Sangam’s other events and explore India on your own.

Apply for Community Programme for anywhere between 3 and 12 weeks and receive a personalized placement. Sangam staff will work with you to match your skills with a partner organization where you can make a difference.
