High School Leadership Program
Students in the High School Leadership Program learn core academic (science and mathematics) and interpersonal skills. This virtual learning program allows students across India and Nepal to learn from field experts. All teaching is carried out through live (virtual) videoconferencing. We provide all the technology and resources required to facilitate teaching. The curriculum goes beyond traditional classroom syllabus to include communication, interpersonal and entrepreneurship skills including development of business ideas and writing business plans.
Students enrolled in the High School Leadership Program:
● Get access to quality education.
●Receive necessary technological support to ensure active learning.
●Develop critical cross-cultural communication skills.
● Learn innovative and entrepreneurial skills.
● Develop confidence, leadership, and presentation skills.
● Learn to develop cross-cultural relations with our partners – The Highland Park Sister Cities Foundation Initiative.
Budding entrepreneurs receive critical guidance and support. A highlight of this program is the business plan competition. Students are encouraged to explore creative opportunities, innovate and create a real company. These start-ups are then backed by market research, multiple iterations of prototypes and user testing. Interactions with customers and partnerships help pave the way for success. At present, this program is successfully operating in 4 schools in India and Nepal.
