We annually recruit 50-80 enthusiastic young people based in the National Capital Region, Lucknow, Patna, and Benaras who are interested in engaging in social impact as volunteers for a year-long volunteer programme. Our volunteers are usually between the ages of 18 and 25 and come from diverse backgrounds with a united interested in creating social change. Volunteers may be university students, from the communities where the programmes work, or even young professionals.
If you are unable to commit to a year-long engagement with us, you could consider applying for an internship with us.
Volunteers play a critical role in running our social impact programmes on ground. We work hard to ensure a collaborative and engaging learning environment for all our volunteers to create social change.
Over the course of 1 year, volunteers can expect to:
- Develop their knowledge, understanding and research/writing skills on issues of gender, sexuality, health, urbanization, rights and governance and the relevance of these issues in their daily lives.
- Conduct workshops with adolescents from low resource backgrounds on issues of gender and sexuality, life skills and health & hygiene, mental health, or digital media.
- Design, evaluate and lead short term social action projects with TYPF’s mentorship and support.
- Participate in policy platforms at the state and national level to advocate for youth issues to other Civil Society Organizations and Government agencies.
