The Program – Virtual Summer Program
Global Challenges and Social Justice is our summer program that will help high school students to fill the gap created by the lack of applied learning in Education systems. Our programs are tailored to respond to pressing social issues in the country. It introduces students to innovation and social entrepreneurship through a series of expert-led workshops and hands-on experiences. With the guidance of experts, the students will learn to structure and break down their project into smaller parts which will pave a way for them to become a changemaker.
The Program is a mix of online group classes and one – on – one sessions ideal for small groups of 10! The programs introduce students to the concept of sustainability, social impact, leadership, innovation, and entrepreneurship with a hands-on approach and learn-by-doing modules.

The last one month spent working with Tribes for Good has been a steep learning curve. Starting out as an unsure kid in the virtual summer program with limited social interaction outside the bubble of immediate family, friends, and accustomed strata of society, I have become more assured, socially conscious, and highly energized young change maker, well aware of my societal responsibilities.
The outcome for me is a ray of hope, and inspiration to develop greater powers to reach out and support the community that envelops us and in which we thrive.

This summer, though the circumstances were difficult and Mr./Mrs. COVID had us locked indoors, I was still able to benefit from these circumstances, learning about myself and making a difference in the lives of others with the help of Tribes For Good. It was a very innovative, interactive, and impactful session and I am very happy that I took part in this program. I have learned so many new things by being a part of this program. I learnt about crowdfunding, social media campaigns, and digital marketing. Most importantly, I have learnt that change can happen, but that it can be slow and that we should have enough patience and an open mind for it.
