Young Indians are often disinterested in their jobs these days, and are exploring career paths which may or may not align with their knowledge, interest and/or skills. It takes several years for them to figure out a combination of what they’re good at, what the world needs, what will pay and what they love.
India Fellow makes it easier by exposing them to a vast range of opportunities in the development sector, where they work with others and on themselves, through direct action and reflection. The fellows complete a holistic process of learning, coaching, mentoring, working at grassroots, and above all, self-discovery – to truly understand their leadership potential.
Know more straight from the team and alumni:
The program has had 96 alumni across the first six cohorts who have gone on to pursue interesting career paths. A lot of them work with grassroots and civil society organisations. Some have gone on to pursue higher studies especially in the areas of development and public policy, while a few have started their own social ventures.
The seventh and eighth cohorts are currently going on with 26 and 11 fellows working in challenging grassroots assignments with the host organisations.
