Teach for India Internship in Kolkata

From our friends at Teach for India:

Teach for India is currently in 5 cities - Mumbai, Pune, Delhi, Hyderabad and Chennai. We wish to expand our operations to 10 cities by 2015-16 cities. For this purpose we are conducting a feasibility research on several cities in India, one out of which is Kolkata. To expand in any site, we would would like to understand the demographics of the site, the state of education in the site and the probability of getting funds to run the Teach For India fellowship program at the site.

The Expansion Intern's responsibilities will be to gather information and recommend an action plan for expansion in Kolkata. We would need to invest and collect information from three important stakeholders:

  1. The Municipal Education department 
  2. Private school leaders 
  3. Corporates/High net worth Individuals. 

The internship duration is three weeks. The internship is a part-time unpaid internship ( 4-5 hours per day). However, all expenses incurred for the internship (Travel within city, telephone calls made and internet usage charges for the project) will be reimbursed. Please note that Teach For India will be unable to reimburse the expenses incurred for accommodation within the city. The intern will also receive an Internship Experience letter on successful completion of the internship.

Please contact John Mathai to apply or for more information.
