TEDxDharamshala is a platform for ideas that are changing the world! The 4th year of the conference will bring together 10+ speakers & 100 attendees hosted across multiple venues with a number of global simulcasts. The annual conference is hosted at the prestigious Dharamshala Auditorium, Civil Lines.
Every year we look for bright individuals who will work with our core team as part-time team members & volunteers.
The TEDxDharamshala Volunteer program attracts individuals from across the world and around India. We only have limited spots available for this program and we choose on a first-cum-first serve basis. So apply now!
Once selected – the team will organise an orientation, training, and briefing for your role at the conference.
Prior volunteering experience with conferences and events an added plus.
Only shortlisted volunteer applicants will be contacted for an interview.
Putting together an event of the scale (main conference, multiple pre & post events and activities, hours of speaker curation, research) and quality (millions of views on our talks + credible global impact) of TEDxDharamshala requires several thousand hours of volunteer effort, from a team of around 15 people + on day volunteers. Just like any small organisation, everyone has a specific, defined role they are responsible for (we’re big on responsibility). Of course, everyone also pitches in where and how they can if help is needed. Our team is actively looking for multi-skilled members that want to make a big difference with their efforts with us.
Core Team Responsibilities
The leadership roles we refer to as “core team” require a significant level of effort – demand varies across the year. The core team is responsible for tying in all efforts to build the mammoth annual conference.
We are interested in interviewing students (undergrads), fresh graduates, professionals (looking for part-time unpaid opportunities). Keep in mind – core team members have a lot of work and they need to put in several hours each week so you will have to convince us that you are brilliant in what you do!
On-Day / Event Specific Volunteers
We usually also recruit a team of more general volunteers for our On-the-day Team as well as a number of specific tasks before the event/week. We shall open applications for the same in September. Keep watching this space for more info on those roles.
Note: If you take on a core team role, you’ll be committing to a full year of involvement with TEDxDharamshala, potentially for several hours each week. There are regular week and weekend meetings to attend and be present at.
TEDxDharamshala provides a multiverse of opportunities to its team members, volunteers and alumni. We plan some cool and interesting off-sites too (Adventures, Salons, etc)! And multiple speakers & partner meetups, tech demos, private musical performances in office and other places! We work directly with MNCs & corporations in India and create content all through the year for our events and activities. And they love our efforts and support us.
