What We Do:
- Student Mentorship Program:
The mentorship programs intends to serve as an early intervention to assist young students to achieve the following objectives:
- Supportive relationship with their peers;
- Progress in academic performance;
- Improvement of personal skills; and
- Development of inter-personal skills
Primarily catering to the students belonging to age group of 9-13 years, typically hailing from middle to lower socio-economic background, provision of a one-to-one mentor aims to fill in the gaps in learning.
The program which runs for a span of one year,intends to impart guidance for both personal development and career prospects. With the goal to increase the students’ performance and attendance, the purpose is to help students to create and adhere to short-term as well as long-term goals.
English for Everyone:
This particular endeavor is to enhance students with the basics of English language and enable them to converse in confidence. As the second-most used language in the world, and in a multi-lingual country like India, it is essential to enhance students with the intricacies of the language and open up avenues of options as opposed to naive knowledge.
Hence to give them a final touch of development and brushing up their skills, Everyone Is Important volunteers help these students gain fluency in English language to take their life a notch up!
