Our volunteer profiles and the volunteering programme is designed in a way that volunteering is fun as well as impactful. We want our volunteers to better the world around them as well as their inner world. Every volunteer profile has immense scope for self-development and significantly contributes to the goal given by Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam : “Train one in every family in emergency care”
INTERNSHIPS @ ALERT
Internships are an integral part of our Volunteer engagement. ALERT provides an ample opportunity for interns to take up measurable projects in the emergency response management space that encompasses a wide range of areas spanning from research work to building operational efficiencies in social welfare. Being a process driven organization, interns are also welcome to take up administrative assignment as the need may be. Our interns come from diverse professional and educational backgrounds, and are seen as integral contributors to the cause of saving lives.
The underlying assumption in all our partnerships with interns is that the experience with ALERT will enable them to continue to participate in the betterment of emergency response management in our society well beyond the course of internship. In that sense, the internship is recognized as a beginning of a much longer relationship between ALERT and the intern, as well as the institution they represent.
How to apply
