Volunteer/ Intern with Us

If you are looking for volunteering or internship opportunities read on! These opportunities are open from high school level onwards, young-old, student-working, on a break-retired! 

Volunteering at the Kriti team
We offer exciting volunteering opportunities to high school and college students, young professionals and anybody else keenly interested in social, development, environment, and human rights issues. The nature of these volunteering opportunities could be:
  • Organising documentary film screenings and facilitation 
  • Social media outreach and networking 
  • Cataloguing of Kriti Film Club resources 
  • Research 
  • Fund raising 
  • Illustration, Designing and Communication support 
  • Cataloguing and outreach of books, resistance music and films at the Docushop 
  • Photography and outreach of eco-friendly and community made products by women’s and children’s groups – as part of Gestures, a livelihoods initiative 
  • Helping hand at festivals and other events 
  • Inhouse visual documentation and short films 
  • Sales of community made products (www.gestures.in)
  • Filing or other coordination work that may be required within the team 
Through the above opportunities, we focus on consciousness raising, knowledge and skill building in our volunteers so that the experience adds to their personal and professional capabilities. Our volunteers get the opportunity to deeply understand development and human rights issues in a space that allows for creative learning pursuits, working independently, learning new skills, gaining networking opportunities with peer organisations and events in the city, apart from a volunteer certificate upon successful completion of assigned tasks.

Internships with the Kriti team
We offer a structured three-month internship programme designed to provide exposure to diverse threads of development thought and human rights action. This would be planned around one or more of our programmes or initiatives. https://krititeam.blogspot.in/p/about-us.html

What we look for in you?

  • the capacity for hard work, learning, listening and taking initiative in different arenas of work in the KRITI team. 
  • an ability to do manual, administrative and often monotonous work along with intellectually stimulating and creative work. 
  • an academic background in political science, sociology, social work, anthropology, development studies, management, economics, art design or communication, etc. 
  • keen interest and willingness to learn and contribute to processes of social change. 
  • knowledge and ability to work on the computer 
  • command over written and spoken English and Hindi. working knowledge of a regional Indian language is an added advantage. 
We would require from you (at least two of the following):
  • an expression of interest in working with us, identifying why you would like to volunteer with us, and for how long. 
  • a brief profile of your personal/ other interests and qualifications 
  • a recent sample of written work/ tutorial (published or unpublished work), if any. 
All volunteers and interns get certificates upon submission of a short experience note from you. No stipends are offered, however, some local expenses may be covered as per resource availability. Many of our former volunteers and interns have received recommendation letters for further studies or jobs and some have also worked with us formally.

The Kriti team believes in equal opportunity across intersectionalities.
