Our Peer Teaching program is a 3 year academic and leadership building program. We partners with schools where students from Grade 7 and above volunteer to be Student-Leaders who then teach and mentor learners from lower grades and aim to bridge their foundational gaps. In the process Student-Leaders develop future ready skills. Our 4+ hours of intervention per week using well-researched pedagogies and age appropriate leadership sessions ensure a holistic development of these student-leaders while they support learners in their learning process.
Improved Academic Outcomes
Students will show academic improvement in both Peer Teaching classes as well as their own classrooms.
Improved Collaboration skills
Students will become collaborative learners and will be able to work effectively in groups.
Improved Communication skills
Students will be able to articulate their ideas, thoughts and beliefs orally and in writing.
Students will take initiatives to ensure their own and their learners goals are met.
Improved Problem Solving skills
Student-Leaders will be able to identify and solve problems in various contexts.
The first two years of our Peer Teaching program requires strong operations support. For this purpose we initiated the Changemaker fellowship where college students from similar communities as our students are onboarded as Fellows, to manage Peer teaching class operations in schools. These fellows gain exposure into the education sector and get a chance to work in a professional environment while they are still in college.
In the future we aspire for the Peer Teaching program to be entirely sustainable. Towards this goal we will work with school leaders and teachers to set up and monitor the program in their schools, with need based intervention from Involve
