Hi all, This is the first year I became involved with the Sewa DTL Program as a mentor. The fact this program is targeting High School students is quite an impressive goal, and the fact that these High Schoolers rose to the challenge to identify and tackle various community issues is a testament to their resourcefulness as well as current and future leadership potential. This was a rewarding opportunity for me to mentor such bright students who persevered in spite of the various challenges that came their way.
Design-to-Lead has been an amazing program that has truly helped me step out of my comfort zone and interact with people from all over my community. I would highly recommend highly beneficial for personal development as well as for the betterment of one's community.
I enjoyed Design-To-Lead as it allowed me to truly make a difference in my own community. The lessons taught in the sessions are ones that I will carry with me for the rest of my career.
I am really thankful to all SEWA lead members for bringing Design To Lead (DTL) Program for high school students. Program provides a great opportunity to students to understand real world problems. Students go through each phase of the program and show great team work. I wish I had a similar program when I was in high school. Highly appreciate all parents and mentors for spending countless hours to add valuable lessons and experience to our kids.
I would like to thank Anurag Miral ji for initiating the “Design to Lead” project and introducing it to SEWA LEAD kids. This opportunity gave all the kids and not just limited to kids but also parent volunteers like us to observe the real world problems and give the kids the direction how to approach a problem. As a parent mentor I have enjoyed spending time and have learnt alot from these kids and amazed by the selfless act by core team volunteers and other chapters leads who have spent countless hours in this process together.
My researching and analyzing technique has improved drastically. Thank you DTL.
Training High School students so that they can follow a structured approach of Design Thinking methodology for Social Innovation is very powerful. It starts a chain reaction of genuine effort to find creative solutions for problems in our community.
DTL Program is a unique opportunity where students learn to explore problems which they can relate to and solve at community level. They tend to be empathetic leaders of the future. Working with parent mentors and a national ecosystem which engrain in them an entrepreneurial mindset.
