Educational Institutions - Universities & Colleges

As student volunteers you have the privilege & opportunity to create better environments for the underprivileged. Blessed with the basic requirements of food, shelter, clothing & education, you will be able to appreciate life better, hence understand the importance of creating healthier communities to their brighten lives.

Not only that! Volunteering brings out new interests, hobbies, and opinions within you and will open up multiple avenues to get involved with new things to develop technical, social, and academic skills that you couldn’t have learned in a classroom environment. Volunteering allows you to experience different environments and situations.

Networking is an amazing benefit of volunteering, and as students you will learn the art of relationship building, hone your professional skills and have access to a breadth of knowledge from your co-volunteers. You will also imbibe a positive way of life, thinking & develop character traits that your potential employers would appreciate while hiring you.

Volunteering for a cause like PUTHRI, will give students like you the opportunities to test out a desired career path. Concurrently, it gives you an edge on your resume. At a young and pretty inexperienced age, volunteering is an excellent gateway to the workforce.

So, get involved. Stop stressing about the number of hours, and start having fun. Yes, volunteering can be fun, especially for students like you!


As a PUTHRI volunteer you will not only stand to gain unique opportunities and remarkable experiences by donning one or many of these hats, but also transform the life of every PUTHRI in your own way!

Depending upon your interests and skill sets you can choose to be a part of one or more of the following seven teams:

MENTOR: Be a personal advocate for your mentee and inspire her spirit

As a mentor you will encourage, motivate, challenge and guide every PUTHRI scholar to think through different solutions for various problems in life. Based on her unique developmental needs, you will seek and create new opportunities to develop new skills and gain meaningful visibility for her and open her eyes and mind to different perspectives. Also, you will link and support their long term goals, values and emotions to a larger organizational agenda, as they become career oriented and career intentional to better their future and quality of life. Similar to being a trustworthy counsellor, as a Mentor, you will be able to make a real impact on the PUTHRI scholars through consistent and ongoing relationship building.

ROLE MODEL: Lead by example with your real time success story

As Role models you will lead by example and inspire PUTHRI scholars to achieve their potential in life. You can share your real time success stories with these girls as to how you achieved success despite the various challenges & hurdles in your life and give them the confidence to overcome every hurdle with perseverance and eventually succeed in life. Ensure students emulate the positive qualities, bringing about an overall change for the good.

CAREER COACH : Nurture high-achieving professionals

As a career coach your expert guidance can empower PUTHRI scholars to identify their strengths & passions, the means & ways to realise them and help them see their present challenges as advantages and help overcome them. When you help assess their professional situations with a greater degree of honesty, curiosity, empathy and compassion, you not only redefine their intelligent quotient, but also the emotional quotient, by reassuring & boosting their self confidence, making their job search less stressful, less anxious and less vulnerable in this competitive market.

Not just that, your support will help these girls make informed decisions about their career development and trajectory, as well as offer various tools that they can use to enhance their qualifications, like writing letters, resumes etc to meet their ultimate goals.

LAMP: Program Content Development

You need to develop and coordinate communication materials, designed to broaden the knowledge and grow the capabilities of our services program.

As a Content Development Volunteer, you will have the opportunity to make an impact, gain leadership skills that will stay with you a lifetime, and help you advance in your professional and personal development, too.

LINK: Acquire and manage the entire school network

You will be the critical link between the teachers, students, parents and the project associates, including the coordinators, mentors, role models, career coaches and other educational institutions. Bridging the gaps and strengthening the school-community relations, you will have to work towards effective implementation & success of school programs.

PLUS: Social media and PR management

You will share and promote PUTHRI events and initiatives online & periodically through various online social media platforms, creating awareness across networks to increase visibility for the cause, eliciting feedback from like minded people, encouraging opinion & policy makers, influencers from the society to participate and support key issues related to girl child education and career intentionality among school girls and women empowerment in general.
