How to Volunteer

Having information on your interests, background and experience is essential to ensuring that you and the person you are helping get the most out of your collaboration.

We ask that you fill in the Ashoka Volunteer Form, attach a resume if possible and send it directly to the contact listed on any posted opportunity to which you would like to respond. Write "Volunteer" in the subject line and copy

When traveling abroad to volunteer, you should be prepared to cover both travel, housing and living expenses, and feel comfortable in rustic and unfamiliar environments. We recommend that you clarify all expectations and arrangements before making your commitment by using the Volunteer Checklist.

Please note that not all Ashoka Fellows are able to host volunteers and that Ashoka is not a volunteer placement agency. We cannot arrange or oversee your travel. That said, we are very happy to make the connections that will make the best use of your interests and skills.

We look forward to welcoming you to our community of Changemakers!
