The program will start from 4pm, 7th February, 2014 and will continue over the period of next 8 weeks. During these 8 weeks we would learn, experience and be a part of 5 issues namely Human Dignity, Education, Women Empowerment & Trafficking, Rural India & Enterprise Led Development. Lead the Change will take changeagents on a rigorous journey of self exploration providing them a hands-on experience on issues facing India and their solutions through leadership forums, enterprise engagement, NGO immersion; ideating and prototyping an enterprise of their own. The structure of Lead the Change has been designed keeping in mind the time commitments of college going students and young corporate professionals. LTC requires an 8 week engagement, with 2 hours (4-6pm) sessions on Mondays & Thursdays and full day session (10am-6pm) on Saturdays. There are 3 residential weekends. Changeagents will be working on ground for 6 weeks either setting up their own enterprise, or strengthening an existing organisation or working for pre-determined time-bound projects. Every week there would be two workshops/Leadership Forums and one field trip (probably Monday & Thursday 4pm-6pm , Saturday 10am – 4pm).
First two days would be residential in Delhi. There would be an overnight stay in a village outside Delhi and last weekend would be again residential in Delhi.
Leadership forums would be sessions with real life role models who have successfully founded/ run an organization and addressed issues with excellence. Leaders like Anshu Gupta (Goonj), Ravi Gulati (Manzil), Vivek Sharma(Gandhi Fellowship), Pramath Raj sinha (Founding Dean, ISB)Shaheen Mistry(Teach For India), Neeraj Agarwal (NIIT Yuva Jyoti), Rishikant (Shakti Vahini), Deep Joshi (PRADAN, NAC), Path Shah (CCS) and few more have been part of our sessions.
