Launching ITSA's Student Mentoring Program!

Independent Thought & Social Action in India is an education reform organization that creates socially responsible youth leaders through critical thinking and social action. We help students convert their ideas into action helping them implement their own community-based projects. “Like” us for updates: www.facebook.com/ITSAInternational.


Mentoring 9th grade to college age students in Ahmedabad, India to:

-       Develop a close information sharing relationship between mentor and mentee
-       Improve student communication and articulation skills
-       Keep tabs on the student’s social action project and aid in its progression

Communication will be virtual through video chatting and email. 



Riya is an ITSA India student who implemented a waste segregation model in a slum in Ahmedabad collaborating with government officials whom we connected her to. Since then she has expanded to working in two different slums and has been able to raise awareness on hygiene, reducing disease in the slums.


“Why should I become a mentor?”
Because you will be:

- Creating cross-cultural connections
- Providing friendship and guidance to an enthusiastic and motivated young adult
- Improving your own communication and mentoring skills, especially on an international level


Submission form: To help us match mentors to mentees, here is the submission form  
bit.ly/ITSAIntMentor due by Saturday, April 6th, 2012.



Time Commitment: 5 Hours/Month, 8 months - July 25th, 2012 - April 25th, 2013.
