Volunteer opportunities in India

Dear Teaching Artists:

We are writing today to tell you about an international teaching opportunity available to you right now through our partnership with Teach for India! We’ve expanded our network of cities throughout India to include Bangalore, and we want to send some of our rockstar Teaching Artists to make a big impression!

With this program, Volunteer Artists are matched with TFI Teaching Fellows to focus on ways to incorporate the arts into their curriculum, such as using music to help teach fractions or using theater to help teach language arts. By sharing artistic tools to bolster classroom teaching, ASTEP shows the arts not only have the power to engage children but to excite them about learning.

ASTEP Volunteer Artists also have the opportunity to work with MAYA the MUSICAL during their time at TFI. MAYA is a full length musical about a young princess who must save her kingdom using courage, compassion and wisdom. In the process of teaching a group of students the musical, TFI and ASTEP teachers take students on a journey to discover their own courage, compassion and wisdom and begin to share those values with their families and communities.

APPLICATION DEADLINE: Rolling
DATES: Year-round 4 to 6 weeks placements are available
WHERE: Pune, Chennai, Delhi or Bangalore
WHO: All artists!

Join us at Teach For India and use the arts to inspire students to take a leading role in their own education.
