IMG_20151016_101357Regular volunteering positions are available for English teachers at Tibet Charity Education Center (TCEC) and for Veterinarians in the Animal Care section.

We also welcome applications from volunteers who wish to contribute in some original way to one of our other operations. Volunteers have, in the past for example, been involved in developing our web site, updating our network, introducing new course books, designing new publicity material and teaching computer classes. People who wish to volunteer in this way are asked to contact the Director in person with their proposal.

If you would like to secure a volunteer position with Tibet Charity, you must contact us in advance and make necessary arrangements. We do, on occasion, receive applications from visitors already in McLeod Ganj but there isn’t always a position available for them.

Here is an overview of Tibet Charity’s work in all the different fields, including a profile of the English school. These documents should answer all your questions about living in Dharamsala as a volunteer. Follow the links to find out more about volunteering with us.


  1. Hello. I would like to apply for a volunteer teaching position with Tibet Charity. I have a Masters Degree in Linguistics, with a concentration in TESOL, a California Multiple Subjects Teaching Credential, and over 24 years of experience teaching ESL, in the U.S., and abroad. I’ve traveled extensively in India, visited Dharmsala several years ago, and always wanted to return. Now that I’m semi-retired, I would love to spend at least 3 months teaching English in Dharmsala. I will be available beginning in March of 2016.
    I hope to hear from you soon.

  2. Tsephel, i am in India. I would love to teach again at Tibet Charity. I see the next semester starts March 1. Since I return to Canada on April 23, I am unable to stay for the entire semester. But I am available from March 1 to about April 22. Let me know if this works for you. I hope you are well and enjoying a bit of a break from the classroom. Best wishes for 2016. Tashi Delek, Jane

  3. Please find attached a copy of the e-mail sent in November 14th and to which we had no answer. Can you tell us if mister Péma Dorjee received our mail and if you need our services between 16 and on January 30th.
    “Dear Tsering Thundup
    We made a mail leave with some photos for mister Pema Dorjee, you can tell me if he is lacking something in particular or who(which) would please him.
    We come back my wife and I to Mc Léod Ganj from 16 till 30 January 2017 from the teachings of Kalachakra you think that it will be possible to meet him during this period?

    We would also like to redo of the voluntary work as in March of this year for the benefit of your association. Is it possible? If yes, the veterinary clinic has some work for us either you need us for another particular action. We are both trainers in the first aids for the human beings (adults and children) and also for animals. I am also educative canine and behaviouristic and my wife was a nurse’s aide.
    We look forward to seeing again you. Good day to you.
    Patrice and Danny”

    • I will ask the home nurses to check if he has any special need. As far as volunteering for Tibet Charity is concerned, we can discuss when you reach here. I am sure we can make very good use of your service. Thank you.
      Wishing you merry christmas and Happy New Year!
