IPER tries to promote volunteerism amongst people especially the skilled. It is a fact every member of society need to play their role in developing the society and people around it and contribute in whatever way they can for their development.
To inculcate this spirit many educational institutions has made it mandatory for the students to work in a social field and are given credit for the same.
IPER has a regular flow of volunteers ranging from school students to office goers, from home makers to professional, young people to senior citizens. They come from within the country as well as other countries. They range from national level universities to Corporate Houses and also non-government organisations.
Volunteers are placed with different projects according to their skills and interest. Many participate in teaching school subjects as well as handcrafts. Some also build life-skills in children and promote sense of health and hygiene in them. They visit Community Learning Centres, attend Street Corner Meetings, and Community awareness programmes and so on.
