iSpiice offer a number of Volunteering Programs in India. Each of our programs run from 2 weeks up to 12 weeks and available all year, starting on Sundays. Usually, our volunteers fly into Delhi International airport on a Sunday, where an iSpiice team member meets them and escorts them to our volunteer location in Dharamsala.
Volunteers usually work for about 5 hours each day from Monday to Friday. Each volunteer chooses two programs, with the day split into two blocks to work on each program. If you are interested in working with children, you might choose to spend the first 2 hours teaching in a school and the second 2 working with street children. You have the opportunity to choose two diverse programs so you can expand your volunteering experience. You also have plenty of opportunities to explore the local area or to pursue your hobbies and interests. iSpiice offers a range of add-on tours, in week ends which allow you to see more of the region and India as a whole. You can take a 2-day trip to the Taj Mahal and Red Fort in Agra, trekking in the Himalayas, visit Amritsar, Jaipur, Manali and much more.
After a meet and greet at the Delhi International airport, volunteers normally stay overnight in Delhi, before making their way to Dharamsala by bus/train the next day. From the moment they arrive in India, our volunteers work alongside and are supported by our iSpiice staff. The communal iSpiice volunteer house is shared by staff and volunteers, where they eat together and spend time together. iSpiice staff provides support to volunteers, from driving them to volunteer locations to answering any questions they might have. The iSpiice team is there as friends and not just staff members. They help to form an integral part of your volunteer experience with the organization. Working with them, volunteers deliver a variety of education and well being programs to the local community in different settings.
Anyone can apply to volunteer with iSpiice on one of our programs. There are no specific educational or skills requirements for you to meet. All you need is the desire to help, the dedication to apply yourself, and the compassion to work with a diverse range of people in the local community.
