What is Involve?
Students are full of potential, and many a time we underestimate what their inquisitive minds can do. They need more than subject knowledge; they need other skills to face the real world and get good employability skills. Lack of confidence, depression and several issues are there which don't let students realize their true potential. Involve is committed to equipping students with tools to strengthen their learning ability. We are developing students from low-income schools into leaders of tomorrow.
We are doing it through a well structured and research-backed PEER Teaching methodology where we train and mentor senior students of the 8-11th standard to teach their juniors. This program helps both the student who teaches and the one who is being taught. While our program design develops the much needed soft skills in the students involved and helps them understand the importance of learning and becoming self-motivated, it also ensures that our classes are much more engaging, purposeful and joyous.
Be a Part of this Change!
For this year, our budget us INR 1.8 million, 1/3rd of which (INR 6 Lakhs) we are raising through your support. The money will be strictly used for program costs (training, workshops, innovation trips and operations support) and to buy some Android tablets to magnify the learning outcomes.
2 out of the 3 co-founders, who are from IIT Madras, are not taking any salary from the organization, and the 3rd quit his job to work towards student empowerment with his head, heart, and hand. Over time, we want to be a sustainable organization recovering about 60% of our costs through revenues.
With as less as INR 250, you can be a part of this change and empower a student in becoming leaders of tomorrow. This is a call for everyone to be a part of our vision of student empowerment and get involved.
