Empowering students for a better tomorrow

We aspire to create student driven learning ecosystem in schools through Peer Teaching to develop leadership skills and improve academics of students from low-income backgrounds.

The Challenge

Today, more than 47% of youth are unemployable and one major reason for that is because of lack of 21st Century Skills. Moreover, the Indian education system is one of the largest and most complex in the world. With increasing burden on teachers and focusing only on marks, we have incentivized memorizing above originality.

School students need to be engaged, motivated, & empowered; not just academically but also be developed to face challenges of Life.

Our Concept

We are an International award-winning IIT Madras-based, a non-profit organization that provides experience-based leadership to young students by equipping them with 21st-century skills and give academic support to students from 4-8th grade using Peer Teaching.

At our core, we train and mentor seniors (Student Leaders) in their formative years of age 12-16 to teach their juniors (Learners).

Our Programs

for Student Leaders (Students above grade 8):

Young Student Leadership Program is the first of its kind year long fellowship program for students above 8th grade, which provides both exposure and experience of Leadership to them, thus providing them with much needed 21st Century skills* to succeed in studies, work and life. We sincerely believe that teaching peers in a suitable environment can give necessary leadership experience to students which will be difficult to get otherwise!

for Learners (Students from 4 to 8 grade)

The Peer Taught Classrooms, along with our activity-based lessons promise to provide just the support our learners need. We motivate them to study and equip them with resources so that they don’t need external tuitions!

Stories of Change

“Stories from our Classrooms which are a constant source of inspiration for us”

TEAM

Do you ever look at people and say, “How will they understand our problems?”. Trust us, we are not those people. All of us come from very humble backgrounds, attending the very same schools we want to impact and have lived that life. We were those students not very long back.
We also understand that the exposure to learning that we got in these recent years is not available to everyone, and thus we want to make sure every student benefits from this! We are here to give back! We are social entrepreneurs and we strongly believe in what we do!
