Help These 150 Students Fuel Their Dream Flight

"I want to become a software developer and make games like my elder brother does"

"I want to be a gynaecologist"

"I want to be rich without working, and I have a plan for it"

(Now that's something !)

These are only some of the responses we got when we asked the question "Tell us about your dream", to a class of 150 students at Jawahar Navodya Vidyalaya in Chandigarh. These young dreamers are students from class 10 and 12, a bunch of extremely brilliant students, who have the spark, the passion and the intent to achieve their dreams. The only thing they lack is the right information, the right direction, and the right mentor.

At the Indian School of Business, we have come together to launch an initiative called "Udaan", wherein we will work with these students throughout the year to make them more aware and informed towards making the right career choice for their future. In our very first workshop with them, we were impressed by how fearlessly they dream and how determined they were to achieve their goals (something we got to learn from these kids). In the year ahead, we plan to hold many more of such career awareness workshops that would equip them with the right information so they do not miss out on any critical aspect of getting into their dream college.

We have broken down our plan into the following two categories, where our most of our funds will be deployed:
  • Class 10 students: We plan to conduct psychometric career guidance tests for these students, which will not only make them aware of the various careers options they can explore, but also map their skills and strengths to careers they can pursue. 
  • Class 12 students: We plan to build a digital repository of all the entrance examinations conducted by various educational institutes, across the country, for different streams, their application deadlines, documents required for admission, fees structure and government scholarships available to fund their education. Why? Because Rajat missed out on his IIT admission only because he was not aware of all the documents required for the admission, AND, he did not plan a backup, because he was not aware of any backup institute. 
Other workshops: We also plan to conduct a lot of other fun educational and leadership development workshops such as workshops on 3D printing, robotics, Model United Nations and many more

These kids have the potential to reach the stars, all they need is the right guidance and direction to take the flight of their dreams.

And we need your support to help us shape their future :)

Dear Supporters,

Thank you all for the immense amount of support and love.

Sharing this update to announce the end of 'Udaan' for the academic year 2018-19 at Indian School of Business. We organised 4 workshops each at Industrial Training Institute, Mohali (ITI) and Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya, Mohali (JNV)

The workshops at Industrial Training Institute, Mohali entailed helping the women students there get the job/pursue the career they desire and/or command higher salaries. With that goal in mind, these workshops were a mix of confidence building, spoken English improvement, entrepreneurial lessons, resume building and general career counselling.

The students at JNV were studying in class XI and XII and are about to venture into the real world soon. So the interventions there were geared towards helping them understand their strengths and weaknesses, capitalise on the former and improve the latter, identify the opportunities available for them, how to apply and most importantly give them guidance as to how to prepare. We tied up a tech startup to help us design psychometric tests and give personalised reports on what career will their skillsets and interests fit.

We are glad we were able to touch the lives of ~800 odd students of a different economic strata and make an impact.

Signing off for this year!

Cheers,
Team Udaan

 Dear Donors,

Thank you for the wonderful support!

Here is a quick update!

We culminated the 'Udaan' Initiative at ISB through the final intervention at ITI in March 2019. The session was done in collaboration with the Entrepreneurship and Venture Capital club at ISB. The intervention was done across 2 days. On the first day, we invited students who were entrepreneurs prior to ISB to share their experiences and to break down the fundamentals of a small business such as a Momo stall to them. The second day involved inviting women entrepreneurs successfully doing their own business in and around Chandigarh. The intervention was a huge success and we ended the workshop by distributing souvenirs of 'Udaan'. Some inside experience pics are below.

Thank you for all the love and support!

Regards
Manu

Dear Supporters,

Thank you all for the wonderful support and love.

In continuation with the previous update, we tied up with the same career counselling agency (ProBano) as earlier and used the psychometric results to organise sessions on future career options by 2 agency experts at Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya. The sessions were attended by ~80% of the class XI and XII students of the school.

The experts briefed the students on how to first evaluate their psychometric report, followed by the career options available for each personality trait and then what will exams to prepare for and their respective timelines.
