If your application is shortlisted you will be invited for an online orientation program by one of our volunteer manager. The program focuses on helping you receive a more personalised introduction to the various activities and projects initiated by ICHARS Support Foundation.
Next you can select the projects and the activities that you would like to volunteer for or contribute to as a part of your internship and go through a final online interview which will be set up by the Volunteer Manager at a mutually convenient time.
- Final steps
If you have been successful at the interview stage the Volunteer Manager will send you an email acceptance with further instructions.
Why should I join ICHARS-SF as a Volunteer?
- You are passionate about making a positive difference in the lives of people around
- You are planning to study abroad and want to boost your resume
- You want to inspire people to live a happier, healthier and a more fulfilling life
How much time commitment do I need for the volunteership?
Sustainable change in perception and mindset required to remove stigma, takes persistent effort over a period of time. Meticulous planning and execution of a project requires time especially when we strive to do so to do the best of our capacity.
Normally we only take on volunteers/interns who can commit to a minimum of three months, in order for the volunteer and the organisation to get the most out of the virtual volunteering experience.
On a daily basis, except in case of crowdfunding volunteers, you are expected to give around an hour for this volunteership.
When are applications open?
Applications are open all year round. Ideally, a candidate would apply to be a volunteer about 1 month before they would like to start their placement.
How does virtual volunteering work?
At ICHARS-SF we use online workplaces like facebook groups, google meet, restream and Zoom to create a cohesive virtual working environment. The same applies to the partners we work with and the projects we take on.
What work can I expect to be involved in at ICHARS-SF?
Usually, you will be assigned to one of ICHARS-SF’s ongoing projects. What you do within that project will depend on your learning objectives and the opportunities available during your time at ICHARS-SF.
