Utkarsh Youth Development Programme

We firmly believe in investment in wholistc development of youth today for a better tomorrow. Access to higher education is becoming increasing difficult for the marginalized due to spiraling costs. The State has moved from the role of establishment and management of Educational Institutions to one of regulation and granting of permissions. With support for Higher Education as a base, Utkarsh engages Youth in series of value building and development initiatives. Giving back to society through volunteering is a core value that every Utkarshite and their family commit to.

Our Initiatives

Support

We support Mumbai based students for professional courses in higher education based on the certain academic and socio-economic parameters. 15 years of experience of intensive due diligence prior to supporting students across Mumbai, has led to the formation of a dedicated Alumni. Having walked the talk, they are being groomed as catalysts to identify deserving students and connect them to us.
We also support children of Chronic Kidney Disease patients of our Ekta Support Group for education at all levels. Women, children and youth associated with our Community Centres are supported for education as well as vocational training.

Youth Development

Youth Development

Imbibing our core values including volunteering is mandatory for Utkarshites. Each supported student undertakes a pre-decided volunteering task. This helps overall personality development. While we commit to continuation of scholarships through the period of education/training of each Utkarshite, they have to commit to meeting our compliances. This instills a sense of responsibility. Other trainings organized for their comprehensive development are First Aid & Disaster Response, Self Defence, Life Skills and Employability Related Soft Skills.

Utkarsh Ambassadors

We select Utkarshites demonstrating leadership qualities and groom them through a series of trainings and workshops. They commit to pass on the skills / learning gained to others. They become role models for others and also take on mentoring.
