4. Volunteer with Us
GiveIndia is always on the lookout for committed and capable volunteers. While some GiveIndia departments require specific skill sets, in many other cases a willingness to assume responsibility while learning simple new systems is what we need.
Volunteering with GiveIndia means the following:
Helping the current team in specific tasks that will involve execution
Adhering to deadlines that have been mutually agreed
A minimum commitment of 2 hours a day
We do not encourage people who:
have lots of new ideas and strategies and want us to try them
cannot be responsive on mail and will need following up constantly
What there in it for a volunteer:
You will get taken very seriously and based on commitment and delivering of responsibilities. We will engage very actively with you once we are sure of this.
gain a great deal of exposure to an emerging model of philanthropy
Be part of the change that India's largest online philanthropy marketplace is bringing about
Volunteers who have basic computer skills – Word, Excel, Outlook and PowerPoint will find it easier to fit our technology driven working style.
