360+ LEADERSHIP COLLECTIVE
360+ is a network of emerging leaders of US and Indian origin connected by their common experience working in India’s development sector. The main focus of this initiative to provide learning opportunities to young high schools students, often through travel. 360+ with TYCIA Foundation and VOYGR annually hosts a 3 week experiential learning trip for the rural youth in India along with high school students from other parts of the world. The youngsters who participate in this trip come from communities who otherwise do not have adequate resources to explore such opportunities.
The Leadership Collective funds this opportunity with the aim of offering an immersive, international experience that fosters global citizenship and builds leadership skills.
Every year another theme is chosen to work on. Lasy year the team was Adaptive Resilience and this year it will be Youth Citizenship.
Over five months, with four months of pre-departure engagement and one month of in- country experiential learning, the students work together to build a holistic understanding of the theme. The in-country experience takes place at various sites across India.
