Avanti Young Women Leadership Program
Every year, Grade 9 girls undergo an action-based social leadership training program conducted by Avanti Foundation and Blue Ribbon Movement. This experiential, hands-on training enables them to identify a social cause and work towards bringing about a positive change. The closing workshops bring an inspiring woman leader to the school to interact with the students. Some of the topics taken up in 2013-14 include garbage management and segregation, finding a suitable alternative to junk food, creating awareness about carbon footprint, and empowering differently abled people.
