Intern / Volunteer


Maitri is proud of its international internship program where students, generally in college, work full-time in the head office for one semester (approximately 3 months). Interns perform a variety of writing and research-oriented projects in addition to having the opportunity to see and work directly with India’s most vulnerable populations. Interns in the past have worked with adolescent children in Shillong, destitute Widows in Vrindavan, and slum populations in New Delhi. Visit the Maitri Intern’s Blog or the list below to read about their experiences first-hand.

Maitri’s interns not only gain a meaningful experience working with a Non-Governmental Organization, but they also get to enjoy and experience the culture, cuisine, people and places of India.

The University of Utah’s Hinckley Institute of Politics has partnered with us to create an India Internship programme. Through this programme, 2-3 students from the University of Utah intern at Maitri in India each semester.

    Volunteers symbolize the spirit of generosity and compassion, and many of our programmes would not be successful without the time and talents of our dedicated volunteers. Moreover, our volunteers find their experiences at Maitri to be very rewarding.

    Many of our volunteers assist us with our programmes in various ways; any skill set or interest can be put to good use.

    Maitri also connects with volunteers all over the world who can contribute their skills online though our virtual volunteering programme to help address our organization’s needs and strengthen the impact of our work.
