Vidyanjali- School Volunteer programme

The Hon’ble Prime Minister during the review of Sarva Shiksha  Abhiyan on 22nd June, 2015 desired that the Ministry of Human Resource Development may explore the possibility of young professionals being encouraged to volunteer their services in Government schools.
The Ministry of Human Resource Development recognizes the unique place of volunteers in schools. School volunteers are mentors, confidantes and communicators. Vidyanjali is an initiative to enhance community and private sector involvement in Government run elementary schools across the country under the overall aegis of the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan. Through this initiative people from the Indian Diaspora, retired teachers, retired government officials including retired defence personnel, retired professionals and women who are home makers can volunteer at a school that requests for one.
Vidyanjali will also cover initiatives under the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Public Private Partnership (PPP), with Public Sector Undertaking (PSU) Companies, private corporate and others.
A very large number of people who are not part of the government have expressed a desire to give back to society and particularly to children in government schools. This includes retired government and other professionals, home makers and also members of the Indian Diaspora and their children.
At the same time, there is a huge gap in the provisioning of educational services to children in government schools particularly for co-scholastic areas.
This programme has been envisaged to bring together people willing to volunteer their services at schools which really need them.
The aim of the programme is to strengthen implementation of co-scholastic activities in government schools through services of volunteers.
As far as teaching in schools is concerned, the Right to Education (RTE) Act, 2009 has stipulated clear guidelines on minimum qualifications to be laid down for persons to be appointed as teachers.  In alignment with the provision of the RTE Act, 2009, the National Council for Teacher Education has laid down minimum qualifications for a person to be suitable to be a teacher at the elementary level in Government Schools. Additionally, the Centre and States organize the Teacher Eligibility Test (TET) which is mandatory for candidates to pass before they can be appointed as teachers. Therefore, the volunteers will not teach any subject in school or take regular class.
While the teachers in schools are responsible for all teaching-learning processes, a Volunteer at a school could enrich the teaching–learning process by conducting co-scholastic activities.
The volunteers will therefore be engaged for co-scholastic activities and not be a replacement for the regular teachers and neither will they be involved in any kind of formal teaching.
Implementation of the programme
The programme will be piloted across 20 States which committed to do so in the conference of State Ministers of Education held on 8th February, 2016. These States are Assam, Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Chattisgarh, Delhi, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Gujarat, Goa, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Manipur, Odisha, Punjab, Rajasthan, Telengana, Tripura, Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh. A State wise list of numbers of schools for this pilot is attached at Annexure 1. It was decided there that the MHRD will develop detailed guidelines for the programme in consultation with and these will be shared with the States for their suggestions before it is piloted
