Involve Learning Solutions Foundation
Started by young entrepreneurs from IIT Madras, while in college, to give ownership to students through Peer Learning
Involve has developed a strong academic & leadership development Program around Peer-Teaching pedagogy to solve for learning challenges. We partner with schools to train and mentor senior students (7th grade onward) to teach their juniors (4th-8th grade) in an after-school program. Our cutting-edge training & curriculum support, with 6+ hours of intervention/week, develop age-appropriate leadership in seniors and improves academics of juniors. Currently, we are doing this online where students teach each other over various platforms by taking initiative through our structured program. Our long-term plan is to developing Agency in students: Voice, choice, and skills! This would happen in 2 ways: 1. Enabling the system to trust the students & provides equitable opportunities - for students voices and - to let them make choices 2. Empowering the Students with confidence & skills to choose from different options available via reasoning, thinking, evaluation, etc
We are currently working in Karnataka and Tamil Nadu across 20+ schools to impact 1800+ students. Our program has won multiple international awards for its innovation & strong implementation. (Find pictures and videos of our classrooms here.) We have Ujwal Thakar (Ex-CEO Pratham), Lakshmi Narayan (CEO, APF), and Sanjay Purohit (Infosys Ex-EVP) as our mentors.
