Several Units of Auroville are keen on welcoming professionals and students interested to engage in their projects; they present below a picture of their needs and expectations.

More opportunities are available through Savi, which offer a complete package of services to registered volunteers. Contact study@auroville.org.in to get a complete list of available opportunities.


Future school is a high school level program primarily for Aurovilian students between the ages of 14 and 20. The school offers courses in most relevant disciplines, including a wide variety of languages and elective subjects, and students can choose to prepare for internationally recognised exams (British O-levels and A-levels) if they wish. The campus has a range of educational facilities including a wonderful library and labs for physics, biology, chemistry and computer sciences. We encourage a minimum commitment of 6 months for volunteers and teachers.

Every term, our teaching and volunteering needs change, so if you are interested in education involving teenage youth and are able to make a minimum 6-month commitment,  please contact us at futureschool@auroville.org.in.
