Wednesday 26th May 2010
Volunteer with GapGuru in India on your gap year abroad for invaluable publishing experience
Gap years are perfect opportunities to gain experience in new and exciting environments. GapGuru offers a range of internships abroad where you can immerse yourself in local culture while gaining valuable work experience.
The GapGuru editorial internship in India gives you the opportunity to gain publishing and teaching experience in the vibrant and cosmopolitan capital, Delhi. 57% of the population lives in slums and education is often poor or inaccessible. GapGuru work with an organisation that publishes a range of fiction and academic works and runs community schools in slum areas, where gap year interns can help to spread education in a number of exciting roles.
As an editorial assistant on this internship abroad you could be writing creatively, editing translated texts, working on press releases and newsletters or even designing book covers and learning aids. This role is ideal for anyone interested in publishing.
Volunteers on this gap year internship can also get involved in teaching in slum communities. By teaching English in India you can help children from the poorest backgrounds to improve their prospects and enter mainstream education.
Volunteers on this internship abroad can work as an editorial assistant, a volunteer teacher, or even both! Whatever your preference, a gap year project with GapGuru guarantees you the experience of a lifetime!
Gapwork Gap Year Tips: When to Visit India
A visit to India should avoid the monsoon seasons. In late May or early June Western India plays host to torrential rains virtually every afternoon (and we mean torrential - try pouring a bucket of water over your head and you will understand!). In October and November it is the turn of the East and South of the country and finally in July and August the mountainous areas of Northeast India get their turn. The weather in India is as varied as everything else in this vast country. India has hot tropical weather with variations occurring from region to region. The coolest months are from November to mid-March and the hottest are from April to June. Find out more about a gap year in India, visit our Destination Middle East & India section.
