CSA’s Student Volunteerism is helping the students transform from being Learners to to Leaders. Students are engaged through six cohorts, in which every cohort is led by two cohort representatives and guided by a mentor. Each cohort is further divided into five programmes and multiple teams, to ensure its smooth functioning. The volunteers, who are part of the cohort plan, undertake the activities, in alignment with the focus areas of the government and the institution.

For Volunteer Registration : 

We sensitize student volunteers through student programs. Students’ initiatives are directed to focus on child development and society as a whole. The student program consists of:








Cohort 1 - Education and Skill Development (Learn. Ignite. Discover.)

The Education and Skill Development cohort under CSA aims to incentivise education for all through the volunteers’ body and resources. It aligns with the values of Right to Education and NILP government policy and focuses on education and development of children in the adopted project areas of the Centre and also on skill development for dropouts. It involves several training and workshop programmes to incentivise soft and hard skills, equipping the learner to bag jobs and choose a suitable career efficiently. It engages volunteers with daily teaching sessions and events, with a focus on education and skill development sensitivity. (Read more)
