Bighelp Youth Internship Program

Bighelp invites children between 6th grade and 12th grade to participate in the 'Bighelp Youth Internship Program' in India during their summer vacation in India. This program provides a platform for non-resident Indian (NRI) children globally to learn and understand the culture of their peers in India by spending time together in a classroom environment.

Highlights of the program:
- Earn volunteer hours through internship opportunity abroad
- Internship at your preferred location or choice of government public school in India*
- Great opportunity for parents to give back to their school/community through their children
- Be a part of a reputed non-profit organization dedicated for education
- Freedom in creating and executing your dream project, from start to finish
- Demonstrate leadership skills by being a role model
- Cultural exchange through peer groups abroad
- Expert advice and guidance from experienced members of the organization
- NRI children living anywhere in the world can participate

In this program, children will be visiting a government public school in a village of their choice in India*, organizing a workshop, sharing their experience and learning from the local children. The objective of this program is to help non-resident Indian children learn the public education system in India, while making them partners in spreading the educational awareness in India. The objective also includes providing volunteer opportunity for children to earn community service hours for their school/college admissions.

Bighelp teams in the USA and India, the parents of the participating child and the participating school will be working collaboratively to implement this program. In this program, children visit public schools in India where their parents or grandparents studied and organize a 2 day workshop in their respective school. Parents will be identifying the school of their choice in India, preferably where they studied or originated. Bighelp will coordinate with the school and facilitate the workshop.

Registration Process: Registration process to participate in this program will start in the month of March every year. An invitation will be sent to the Bighelp mailing list with instructions to register in the program before the due date. All NRI children living anywhere in the world, currently studying between 6th and 12th grade, with broadband internet connection and phone at home, are eligible to register in this program. All registered students will need to participate in at least 2 conference or Skype calls of 1 hour each to learn the process and demonstrate their workshop readiness before start of their vacation.

Post Workshop: After the workshop, students should write a paper describing their experience and send to Bighelp along with few photos. Students will also send their report to their local newspapers after getting an approval from Bighelp.

Certificate: Bighelp will mail a "Volunteer Certificate" to the student with his/her earned community service hour credits.

* If the school of your first choice is not available for this internship during the requested timeframe, we will try to get a school of your second or third choice.
