Student Mentorship Program Mentoring Program for Grade 9 to 12
Indian students aiming to pursue higher education in foreign universities are required to meet stringent admission guidelines in order to compete with global applicants. Their assessment is based on a multitude of parameters such as academics, extra-curricular activities, leadership potential, internships, community service, etc.
PPRO EED’s Student Mentoring Program is a personalised program for each student to encourage academic excellence, connectedness and engagement, besides their personal growth and overall development. It is customised and tailor-made to the strengths and capabilities of each student and ensures that the experience is empowering to both the mentor and the mentee.
PproEed aims to groom a potential candidate from the grass-roots level starting from Grade 9 or even earlier. We believe that, to ensure the average Indian student applicant offers a competitive application, the student must be groomed earlier during the educational system.
We as a company spend a lot of time and effort working with the students in planning college admissions but along with that we also care a lot more about our students’ success throughout life in general. One of the primary ways in which PPRO EED helps students to become lifelong learners is via our Mentorship Program, which extends learning beyond the walls of classrooms. Through the Mentorship Program, students hone their abilities and knowledge and prepare themselves to be confident leaders and achievers, with well-developed communication skills. In addition, they learn more about themselves with strong degrees of self-awareness into their own strengths and weaknesses and also gain insight into career opportunities.
Most often, students that are targeting top schools attempt to build extracurricular profiles that they think colleges want to see; whereas we strongly believe that every student should determine for themselves what their interests are, and then work towards achieving within those interests to become a successful and confident personality.
OUR PLAN OF ACTION
We work with students during their academic & holiday calendar to help them identify and pursue Leadership Developmental activities of their interest such as summer camps, summer school courses, internships, community service, environment-related activities, blogging etc. To plan the program, we meet with the parents and student to establish the aims and objectives of the program and the anticipated outcomes. We will enable you to maximise your potential by identifying key leadership opportunities inside and outside of school like events around your locality or make worthy contributions to your society, in the process of building on the college application.
A Ppro Eed mentor would invest time with the student to gauge the student’s potential by understanding his or her areas of strengths & opportunities. Having gauged this, the consultant would chart specific, time-bound goals for the student to sharpen his/her personal and academic profile.
Additionally, the mentor would help the student develop specific set of skills geared towards creating a powerful portfolio of applications, especially aimed at top universities and/or helping the child to blossom to his/her full potential. We also work closely with an NCERT certified counsellor, parenting coaches and child psychiatrist, and would connect the parents to the same if required. You get to chart your own growth with us.
