52% of India’s children do not finish school. More than half of them work in often exploitative, unsafe unorganised sector employment. The rest mostly do nothing. A large percentage of them also come from some of the poorest sections of society.
Antarang Foundation is a registered not for profit that works with these disadvantaged young adults. Through structured interventions Antarang motivates young people to stay in education until they are 18, after which it trains them in employability skills and places them in careers of their choice.
Over the past 3 years, Antarang has worked with over 3000 young people across Mumbai, Pune and Varanasi.
To strengthen the work and build engagement of stakeholders with Antarang, we are looking to hire interns for the following positions:
1. Communications – Conceptualise and implement critical components of the communications strategy for Antarang’s key stakeholders. This would include films, social media, posters and other communications materials.
2. Impact Evaluation – Conceptualise and implement an evaluation for Antarang’s programs. This position requires an understanding of basic research principles and the ability to write evaluative reports.
3. Mentor Program – Document the processes and systems of Antarang’s mentor program as a manual for ready reference. Conduct an evaluation of the program and recommend methods to make the program more effective.
4. Community Engagement – Document the systems and processes followed in the community engagement methodologies used by Antarang currently and make recommendations to improve efficacy.
All the above positions are for a minimum period of 6 weeks, full time. The interns would be paid a small stipend. Antarang is a small, vibrant team. The organisation provides plenty of learning opportunities and strong mentors. Interested candidates may write in to email@example.com
