The Avasara Leadership Fellows program is non-profit after-school enrichment program for girls who are highly motivated and have a love of learning and a desire to lead. Avasara Leadership Fellows is part of Avasara Academy.
ALF adds deep value to the educational experience of motivated young women in ninth and tenth standard by providing academic support and leadership training to girls attending municipal or affordable private schools in Mumbai. With access to outstanding faculty and resources, the talented girls in this after-school program have the unique opportunity to dream big and realize their aspirations. The program runs for three hours every weekday after school in BKC, Mumbai, and is for girls attending SSC Engish-medium schools. The first cohort of Avasara Leadership Fellows (now graduated and in 11th Standard) was admitted in December 2012 and a second (currently in 10th Standard) was admitted in June 2013. In December 2013 we started a four-month program for 8th Standard students. In June 2014 we admitted a cohort of 62 8th Standard girls to investigate whether beginning in 8th Standard is a better model.
Our current students: 17 10th Standard students and 62 8th Standard students
