Come volunteer in a new, energetic Holistic school in a village located in Kerala, South India! Its focus is on holistic education and the school has a particular focus on ecology. (Kerala is at the forefront of experiencing severe climate change, with ever-rising heat and humidity, pollution and smog, and increasingly frequent severe flooding). We follow a unique teaching approach carefully designed through the integration of the educational philosophies of Mahatma Gandhi, Rabindranath Tagore, Maria Montessori and Rudolf Steiner. This means it is not 100% Gandhi's Philosophy, Tagore's Philosophy, Maria Montessori or Rudolf Steiner's. It is an upcoming and growing project trying to move and think from the conventional system to a Holistic/Alternative Approach. Since 2017 we were located in Kuravilanghad and now we are working to relocate this project to a new location called Thuruthikkara which also has the certified distinction of being the first green village in the entirety of Kerala. We prefer to call it an Agro-Edu-well-being-Hub rather than a conventional and stereotyped system.
We look for volunteers in the field of Arts & Crafts, Music & Dance, Yoga, Maths, Science, Communicative English, Graphic Designers, Web Developers, DIY & Project writing. Primary Target Students:- Age group 3 - 12 years old students, but we also welcome students of all ages who wish to jump out of the traditional system.
We also have client schools where we are promoting holistic and activity-based teaching and learning. So volunteers are also assigned to other schools if we get requests from the client schools. But the approach will always be the same: "Integrated and Experiential teaching and learning" We are also searching for vibrant volunteers to organise summer camps in different schools as part of our community. We promote camps and workshops to promote Communicative English Language Skills, Arts & Crafts, Yoga - Mindfulness, Music & Dance and Activity-based Math-Science learning.
"Please note that the minimum volunteer support is 45 days for a fruitful give-and-take experience in this holistic project"
Here you will find an open-minded staff and management team interested in supporting your volunteer experience in every way possible. Your skills, desires and goals will be integrated into the vision and energy that is already coursing through the school and its community. As a young school, there is great flexibility and receptivity to outsiders. Our Village people are warmhearted and friendly and you will feel a part of the community immediately. Since it is a village, please ensure the dress code is respectful.
The HUB sees itself as a knowledge pool where the students and teachers come together to share and grow together in a flat structure. We envision a future education system that promotes cooperation, mutual growth and holistic learning rather than competition and a focus on grades and tests.
- Learning via real life, outdoors and hands-on experience/sensory input.
-Multiple Intelligence & Integrated Learning approach instead of rote learning/memorisation
NB: Please make sure you have an updated resume to share. This resume will help us to understand the prospective Volunteer's educational background and experiences to connect with our Holistic Philosophy. Please like our FB page and go through our programs. We would appreciate it if you could come up with suggestions where you could actively contribute as a Volunteer. we can send you the link
