Training and induction


At Janaagraha internships are ideally accepted for durations that are a month and more. Interns may come on an individual basis where there is no formal partnership between Janaagraha and the institution the intern is associated with. They also come through formal partnerships.  Interns also engage through voluntary organisations. Interns are not paid any stipend or other incidental expenses. If internship durations are for 2 months and more they will be assigned to specific projects/programmes. Internships of a shorter duration will support one or more programmes in short term activities.

Interns will be mentored by the Programme Coordinators directly or through designated team members under the same programme.




Volunteers engage in myriad different combinations of time and duration. Interested volunteers are to register on the website or come in for an orientation. Skills and time commitments are ascertained and areas of involvement are mutually identified. Foreign volunteers express interest to volunteer by registering on the website, via email or contacting Janaagraha by phone. Volunteers can be broadly classified as short-term and long-term, full-time and part-time.

Primary difference between volunteers & interns are the modalities of engagement with Janaagraha. Interns engage with Janaagraha as a part of their academic needs or through formal partnerships established between the two institutions. A volunteer is anyone who chooses to support us in our programmes/projects.
