Timing: 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM       Date    : 5th December 2014        Venue : IIM Udaipur

About the Event

Prayatna – The Social Responsibility Club of IIM Udaipur with its ‘Campus Connect’ program has made a small, sincere effort to create a platform required to bring in the social change. The latest Campus connect initiative saw students of Government Senior Secondary School, Balicha, Udaipur interact with IIM Udaipur students. The mission of the program is to instill confidence and help students DREAM BIG!!! The motive was to set a platform where students could connect, interact, and be part of the mentorship program. The program is unique in itself as students are in constant touch with their mentors (Students of IIM Udaipur), who motivate, guide, and help their mentees understand their liking/disliking, share information and experience which in some way or the other guides the students to achieve their short and long term goals. These goals are not restricted to engineering or MBA, and are related to any of the future avenues which the student holds dear or is interested in. Prayatna expects this would bring in the positive change and would create sustainable and life-changing experience for the individuals involved.

Activities Organized

The day constituted of fun-filled events. It began with an ice-breaking Creative Paper Art session where the students (20 Girls and 27 Boys) were first asked to showcase their skills with a pen and paper. The activity was enjoyed by all the students and many of them were rewarded for their beautiful art. Thereafter, students were given a chance to speak about self and their aspirations, for 2 minutes. The intention was to make them feel comfortable and to build confidence. Most of the students came up with bright aspirations; one of them wanted to become an engineer, another, doctor, a few wanted to join the Indian Army and some wanted to get into the Civil Services.

Going ahead in the day, a quiz session was organized for the students. Questions asked were related to the monuments, lakes, forts of Udaipur. The participation was overwhelming as the moment the question appeared on the presentation-slide, all of the hands rose to answer. They were delighted to receive chocolates and goodies as rewards. The session also included sessions on Importance of Education and Life after School with the intention to educate students of their career opportunities and the assistance that our institute can provide. Motivational videos highlighting the importance of hard work and overcoming obstacle, were shared with the young minds to motivate them to think “BIG” and reach the pinnacle of success.

Proceeding to the last event of the day, each mentor accompanied his/her assigned mentee for refreshment. The idea was to make mentee comfortable to interact with their assigned mentor, interact on a one-to-one basis, and discover things about each other. The mentors-mentees jelled well in a short span of time and exchanged their phone numbers, email ids and a schedule set for themselves to converse with each other over every weekend.
