Through its Service Adventours program, Communities Rising provides opportunities for short-term volunteer experiences and long-term internships  working with its educational programs in India.

Participants will be in the unique position of being able to work with a grass roots nonprofit organization in a developing country. You will learn lessons that could never be taught in a classroom.

Be prepared to be flexible and open to new experiences. Each trip and internship is a unique and organic entity dependent on the diversity of the participants – no two trips are ever the same. Come with an open mind and a positive attitude and you will have the experience of a lifetime!

Short-term Trips

Our short-term trips are usually 2 weeks long, and take place during the Christmas holidays and the summer months. Participants frequently travel together as part of a university, high school, or corporate group, but individual volunteers are welcome to join a larger group. Learn more about our short trips.

Long-term internships

Long term internships range in length from 2 – 6 months.  Interns teach in our educational programs. Learn more about our internships.
