Volunteer DSS – Pune

We have plenty of opportunities if you are interested in volunteering with us. As a volunteer with Door Step School – Pune, you can:

  • Making teaching aids which are used in Door Step School classes. Material and instructions will be provided by DSS staff. Can be done on weekends, too.
  • Entering data into excel or software fields, from manual reports. Usually data is collected from DSS classes in handwritten format. Need to convert it into computerised format for further analysis and reporting.
  • Working with children of 6th to 10th standard to teach them Maths/Science/English.
  • Helping 11th standard students with English, as it is difficult for them to switch from Marathi medium to English medium.
  • Taking children out to nearby parks, zoo, bank, factory, etc. for learning and enjoyment. Need prior planning with DSS teachers.
  • Organising events for children, such as quiz, lectures, competitions, art camps, dance shows, etc.
  • Helping DSS administrative staff in preparing reports, planning events, conducting meetings, etc.
  • Working with DSS staff in municipal schools. Distributing extra-reading books to children and helping them improve reading ability.
  • Organise fundraising activities at own college or office. Help in fundraising activities by manning DSS stalls at exhibitions in companies, malls, etc.
  • Help in designing newsletters, e-mailers, posters, and other promotional material.
  • Translating reports and information submitted by DSS staff, from Marathi to English.
  • Preparing case studies of children/staff. This will involve taking photographs and writing a note about specific achievement of the case being represented.
  • Saturdays are non-instructional day for our construction site centers. So volunteers can do craft activity, tell stories with help of pictures, conduct simple science experiments, show CDs on environment, personal hygiene etc.
  • Follow-up of children enrolled through ECC campaign: Sites and schools will be assigned to volunteers, based on their location. They can visit the school on Saturday or visit the sites in morning/evening time (or on Sunday) to track children’s attendance. Any difficulty/problem can be reported back to campaign team for further action.
  • Conduct extra-curricular activities at schools on Saturday: Depending on availability of volunteers, activities like story-telling, art and craft, painting, etc. can be planned at PMC schools or DSS construction site classes.
  • Write about own experience: Volunteers involved in survey and admission activities can write about their experiences. We will share them with other volunteers, will publish on blog, and will try to send to newspapers. Volunteers can also help by spreading the word about ECC campaign and immediate needs like transport and follow-up.
