Volunteerism has played a vital role in providing quality education to students from different socio-cultural and economic backgrounds since the organization's formation, and this is the soul of this program.
During the cycle of three months, teaching leadership, passionate and empathetic college students take on the role of Science facilitator in an assigned school. They deliver six theme-based workshops to the same classroom.
This program emphasizes hands-on learning and encourages active participation in workshops. Additionally, it places significant importance on integrating leadership values into teaching practices.
The most rewarding aspect of our organization is creating positive learning experiences for our participating members and offering lifelong opportunities for leadership development and growth.
Over the past year, a team of 20 facilitators positively impacted over 500 students across three schools. This year, the team plans to expand their reach to 15 schools in Pune and P.C.M.C. City, with 300 facilitators aiming to impact 3000 students.
