RB Children for Change

Leadership Workshop

BUILDING OUR FUTURE TOGETHER

BUILDING OUR FUTURE TOGETHER

Featured Project

RB Children for Change Programme on Leadership with Sanskriti School, New Delhi - August 2020

This project is being showcased to celebrate the progressive & innovative thinking by the Student Council members of Sanskriti School, 

and to provide an opportunity during the COVID lockdown for the council to connect with the school community who they wish to lead and inspire. 

We hope that this will enhance the feeling of fellowship and support positive change dialogues initiated by young leaders !

Through this online workshop, the participants (16-18 years) explored self-awareness through self-reflection & creative questioning. 

They articulated their own personal vision and mission statements to understand what motivates them, what are their passions, life goals, values & leadership qualities.  

Through discussions, free brainstorming and systematic thinking led by RB facilitators, they created vision statements and identified areas of improvement for their school. Deep diving questions like 'Are the solutions sensitive towards all?', 'What is our motivation?', 'Who do we want to benefit?'

helped them formulate creative ideas and solutions that could help achieve their mission for the progress of the school and its people. 

We envision a world where the

young are empowered to

express and lead the way in

shaping a better future.

GOALS & CREATIVE IDEAS to improve and introduce new ways to make the school,

it's environment, student experiences, learning and growth better for everyone.

interesting and important for your school & its students. Remember, your choices matter.
