AIM is inviting applications for ‘Mentor India’ . Network Capital members are invited to express interest in serving as mentors for this nationwide movement to provide thought leadership, mentoring and guidance to school students across the country.

Mentor India is a strategic nation building initiative to engage leaders who can guide and mentor students in 900+ Atal Tinkering Labs that Atal Innovation Mission has established / is in the process of establishing across India. We are looking for leaders who can spend 1 – 2 hours every week in one or more such labs and enable students to experience, learn and practice future skills such as design and computational thinking.
