These challenges exist because students' learning is entirely dependent on teachers, and students have always been passive participants in the learning process. This is unsustainable because the world is changing and we don't have the teaching infrastructure to support the personalized attention needed.
We believe that developing agency in students and making them more self-reliant, will reduce the dependence on the adults in the learning process. In order for this to happen, students will need to take ownership of their learning and develop the necessary skill sets for them to thrive. Towards this vision, Involve takes a two pronged approach. On one side, through our peer-based programs we equip students with academic and future-ready skills. While on the other side, we work with the larger education landscape to build an ecosystem of trust for our student, empowering them to take stronger ownership of their lives.
In the next 5 years, we want to develop agency in 1 million students via various programs of peer-based learning with presence in min. 3 states. We also will work towards policy recommendation to have time allocated for Peer-based learning (via curriculum design - Strategies for P2P, Bridge program through PT)
After our programs, our students have been able to improve their foundational learning and have demonstrated improved confidence, taken initiatives, and solved problems in their classrooms, not just for themselves, but also for their peers. We are creating a culture of students learning from each other. Our impact in numbers:
Earlier I would get angry at my friends if they did something that I did not like. After joining the Involve program, I learn how to behave like a true leader. I learn how to listen when someone speaks, specially my teachers. Also, in the process of teaching maths to my learners I have also improved myself. I believe I have become a better person now.

The teachers usually use the board to teach, but here in Involve class I learn from my friends who teach using different things. We play and learn together. In 7th standard I want to become a leader. I am exicited about that because I will also get to teach others

My child joined the Involve program and i've seen many changes her since then. Once I saw that she was not able to study one subject, so I was worried and spoke to her Involve fellow. She immediately talked to my daughter and guided her. She alo helped my daughter make a timetable which she uses regularly to track her day! Earlier she was a featherless bird, now she has the feather of Involve
