School Volunteers: The school is now looking for volunteers who have a natural affinity and ability to work with children. In the kindergarten, volunteers will work with young children from 2 to 6 years of age. In the other classes, volunteers will support the teachers. A good knowledge of English is necessary, and teaching experience would be helpful but is not essential. The intention is that the school will make a gradual transition to a child-centered model of learning. Most important is the volunteer’s willingness and ability to dedicate a committed period of time, beginning with the coming academic year (June 2011).
Teachers: The school has a particular interest in finding teachers from Kerala and Tamil Nadu. Indian teachers will receive full payment. The school needs teachers for Baby Class, LKG, UKG, and 1st until 7th grade. Western teachers may also volunteer to teach science, mathematics, and English.
Gardeners, Landscapers, Park Planners: Mother Meera's Ashram has 10 to 15 acres of land to be developed into a public park. Volunteers with related experience in landscaping, gardening, park planning, or creating a vision for public gardens are invited to participate in the gardening project.
Other Professionals: Mother Meera is also seeking medical doctors who would be willing to volunteer their time and services for the surrounding community. Architects are also welcome.
