The Apprentice Project
The Apprentice Project (TAP) aims to develop socio-emotional skills to build real-world exposure in low-income kids in the age group of 10 to 14 years. They believe that all children should have the skills and resources to realize who they are and achieve what they want to be. TAP was conceptualized from the understanding that students from low-income schools lack the skills, exposure, and opportunities to be successful in the 21st century. To solve this problem, TAP selects and places high-skilled volunteers facilitators in under-resourced schools for a period of one year. The volunteers mentor and inspire children across the domains of Visual arts, Performance arts, Technical Arts (coding and electronics), and Sports. Due to school closures on account of COVID-19 TAP haS created a remote-learning platform, accessible from across India, with an offline support network to ensure all children are able to express how they feel and learn what they love from home.
