Network Capital has partnered with NITI Aayog’s Atal Innovation Mission (AIM), Government of India’s flagship program to promote innovation and entrepreneurship.
NITI Aayog and Network Capital will liaise to build a nationwide “time bank” for skill sharing. Accomplished professionals will volunteer their time in schools and share their career trajectories, skills and insights with students who can learn from them. The underlying idea is to inspire, not preach.This has the potential to emerge as one of the world’s largest mentoring initiatives but we must co-create it. While NITI Aayog’s AIM team will define the contours of the program, it is up to every mentor to customize classroom learning.
AIM is now inviting applications for ‘Mentor India’. Mentor India is as a strategic nation building initiative to engage leaders who can guide and mentor schools students in 900+ Atal Tinkering Labs (ATL) established by AIM in schools across India. Through Mentor India, AIM is looking to engage leaders who can dedicate 1 – 2 hours every week in one or more such labs and enable school students to experience, learn and practice future skills such as design and computational thinking. Envisaged to be the largest formal volunteer mentor network, it is aimed at maximizing the impact of ATLs. AIM is looking for corporates / professionals / academicians / students etc. who are keen to contribute to this strategic nation building initiative.
