Transition programs are yatras specially designed for youth in transition. To engage with real experiments addressing global problems, explore their self and deeper interests, and thereby journey towards what they wish to be than what they currently are.
‘Aagaaz - A Yatra exploring the Self through the World’ is for young individuals to travel and delve into plural aspects of the world and the self. The yatra exposes one to the multiple facets of Education, Ecology, Economics and Social Justice, through the lives and activities of people and organisations working in these domains. They shall explore and observe how these entities are interconnected, process one's own relationship with these entities and thereby open space to rethink and reimagine one's own needs.
The yatra is for one to slow down, immerse in nature, recharge their senses and reconnect with oneself and the world. The yatris will be interacting with changemakers who have designed their lives in accordance to their own lines of interest and in alignment with needs of the time. As the yatris would discover the role that Community played in supporting these changemakers, they would work towards finding and establishing one for themselves.
Aagaaz is an invitation to young individuals who intend to take their initial steps into dreaming the future they aspire for themselves and the world.
Transit42 is a transformative learning program intended to take young individuals through the tracks and trails of Pune in Maharashtra to Thrissur in Kerala. As they proceed from one space to another, they will be engaging with innovative local experiments addressing global problems, exploring the diversity in everyday lives and building perspective on today’s happenings and tomorrow’s possibilities.
Through this unique blend of an inward and outward journey of 42 days, we invoke innate curiosity of the learner and initiate a shift from a passive consumer of information to an active participant in knowledge creation. Participants dive deeper within themselves and develop an understanding of their individual nature and define personal motivation that drives their action. Through the outward engagement, they develop perspectives on Sustainability, Environment, Social Justice, Education and Development through multiple lenses. Together we will explore and observe how these entities are interconnected, identify one's own relationship with these entities and thereby through the process, rethink and reimagine one's own needs.
