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.
These labs are non-prescriptive by nature, and mentors are expected to be enablers rather than instructors.
Possible areas of contribution could be, but not limited to:
a) Technical Knowhow: building prototypes,
b) Innovation and Design: inculcating solution oriented approach,
c) Inspirational: leadership and self-motivation, and
d) Business and Entrepreneurship: encouraging ideas and team building
e) Sounding board / guide, break stereotypes and bias to bring about mind set and behavioral change
Applications are open. Admissions to the program will be made on a rolling basis. Submissions made before September 30th, 2017 have been evaluated and the list of selected mentors has been declared.
