The program will feature 16 workshop sessions conducted over a period of three months. Each session will be approximately 120 minutes long and will take place on weekends. A detailed schedule will be shared with all participants.
In addition to gaining key life skills and becoming empowered to make informed decisions about their sexual wellbeing, participants will receive a certificate of completion. All participants will also be a part of a group that is led by peer-mentors for guidance and extended support as they approach university life. The most engaging participants will have the opportunity to join Team Pratisandhi!
Our peer mentors are individuals from reputed colleges across Delhi NCR such as Lady Shri Ram College for Women, Kamla Nehru College, Sri Venkateswara College, Jesus and Mary College, among others. Our mentors are selected after a rigorous process consisting of three rounds to assess their abilities and fit for the role. Mentors then receive external and internal training to equip them in handling questions by adolescents and equipping them with further knowledge in an accurate and friendly manner.
These eight areas are addressed in our program over sixteen workshop sessions.
In the duration of the program, students will be asked to fill in a pre and post-program survey in order to measure their knowledge levels before and after the program. Participating students may also be given short take-home assignments or projects to complete in order to ensure maximum information retention.
In addition to impact measurement, a WhatsApp group will be created for participating students with their student mentors to ensure that they have access to guidance and support whenever they require it. The group support will last for the duration of the program and is meant to entertain questions related to the theme or extra support during high-school, such as peer advising.
