Volunteering at KIS
Kodaikanal International School is a school that attracts diverse people and generates within them a lifelong affection and desire to return. For decades, KIS has encouraged personal and professional philanthropists in what has become an extraordinary and popular volunteer program. People of all ages, nationalities, backgrounds are welcomed into this residential community and spend one or two semesters at KIS helping out with whatever needs doing. Volunteers are expected to work wholeheartedly as a team supporting the mission statement and affirming the objectives of the school as set out in Design '94.
Volunteers are housed, provided with all essential services, may eat all meals in the school cafeteria with the students and residential staff and receive an honorarium to acknowledge their contributions. Of those who come to KIS for the first time, many return to feel deeply touched by the experience of 'coming home'.
KIS has benefited in recent years from assistance with IT, archives, musical instrument repair, classroom teaching, artists, writers and musicians, administrators, architects, marketing, PR, graphic design, fund raising, sports coaching, event organizing. The list goes on. The gifts are endless and KIS is the wondrously grateful recipient.
