AASHA Internship Program
AASHA (Aao Hum Seekhe Aur Sikhayen)
AASHA has run an internship program right from its inception. We welcome and encourage students to spend time teaching and working at AASHA. We believe young people can learn a great deal from the work we do and they add energy and fresh perspective to our organization. Internships provide students the opportunity to improve their communication, teamwork and time management skills.
AAHSA is an avenue for talented, socially conscious students to join us in our mission to help serve disadvantaged communities. There are opportunities galore to learn and enhance your own skills while contributing to our cause – be it improving your language, working on interpersonal, communication & presentation skills, creating and managing processes, applying technical knowledge to make systems and learning smoother etc.
What Interns gain
Teaching is an integral part of the AASHA internship program and is mandatory for all interns who contribute along with other volunteers towards AASHA’s goal to educate disadvantaged children. As a teacher, interns can develop their teaching, storytelling & public speaking skills and learn how to teach through phonics.
Interns at AASHA may also participate in a wide range of other activities such as:
- ⇒ Writing
- ⇒ Content creation
- ⇒ Photography and Videography
- ⇒ Fundraising
- ⇒ Social media management (i.e., Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn)
- ⇒ Program documentation
- ⇒ Research
- ⇒ Assisting other volunteers in administration activities
As an intern at AASHA Infinite Foundation, students get the opportunity to develop professionally useful skills such as communication, teamwork, time management, people management, multi-tasking, marketing, work processes and more.
IIT Kharagpur, Christ college, Oberoi International school, Jamnabai Narsee School, Aditi Mallya International school, Vedanta College, Ekya School, Indus International School, Legacy School, PES College, Jindal Global University, St Joseph’s College, Orchid International School, Brigade School, Innisfree House School are some of the prestigious schools and colleges whose students have interned with us and added value to the work we are doing.
AASHA internships typically involve 100 hours of volunteer work. Teaching can make up part or all of these hours depending on the student’s interest. Guidance for teaching will be provided by AASHA and a mentor will be assigned to interns for other activities. Interns are required to submit a report and contribute to the AASHA blog at the end of their internship.
Students who successfully complete their internship are awarded a certificate. Details of criteria for internship completion will be provided to interns once they join. In case of exceptional work, letters of appreciation/ recommendation may also be issued. Interns are not provided any monetary remuneration.
Given the pandemic, work assigned to interns is remote and can be completed at home using a phone, computer and internet connection.
