Sangam Volunteers are essential to Sangam’s success. Sangam Volunteers work for either 3 or 5 months during Sangam’s event season (June to March). They are responsible for much of the preparation for events as well as running event sessions.
Volunteers in Training are development positions open to Sangam's local Guides, the Nivedita Guide Troop. Armaity Dastur, a former Sangam Committee member who passed away, left a generous donation to run the programme. Volunteers in Training help the Sangam Volunteers in running events, share Indian culture and assist in daily tasks.
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.
