Volunteers in Training are development positions open to Sangam's local Guides, the Nivedita Guide Troop.

Sangam runs the Community Programme offering Programme sessions of varying length from 3 to 12 weeks. We call participants in the Community Programme ‘Tare,’ which means ‘Star’ in Hindi. Tare volunteer four days a week with a Sangam Community Partner and spend one day a week participating in Hindi lessons, debriefing the week’s activities at site, and going on field trips to local sites and other Community Partners and get Saturday and Sunday off (Mostly they use these days to explore out and about in Pune and India)
