This we we learned about a bootcamp for high school students to help them learn to be social entrepreneurs.
Jivika Rajani the woman behind www.Aspir8.org was in the studio to share the story.
Here is what you will learn about Jivika and Aspir8 from her website.
Rajani anticipates students will gain in-depth exposure to principles of social entrepreneurship, learn lessons from successes as well as failures of social initiatives started by other young entrepreneurs, and also have the opportunity to form teams and pitch their own ideas for projects that can make a difference in their schools and/or wider communities.
She’ll develop the camp curriculum with renowned social entrepreneur Scott Sherman of the Transformative Action Institute (who is at the Kravis Leadership Institute at Claremont McKenna College). She also is partnering with Teach For India in Pune and a network of international schools in Dubai to recruit student participants.
The reason for choosing the UAE and India as her boot camp locations is personal. She spent most of her childhood in Dubai and has worked in and visits Pune every year, where her grandparents live.
