Outreach Cell Overview:

The higher education institutions have the responsibility to nurture the young minds and get them ready to face real-world situations when they step out after completing their formal education. We, at DME, firmly believe that if the youths are guided properly from an early age, then they can do wonders in the respective career fields which they choose for themselves.

Keeping this objective in mind, the Outreach Cell was conceptualized in DME in 2017. The Outreach cell continually strives to reach out to students who are still studying in schools. We conduct boot camps, summer schools and webinars in schools to cover the topics which are generally not taken up within the confines of school curricula.

Objectives of Outreach Cell:

The detailed objectives of the Outreach cell are as follows:

  • To collaborate with schools and curate the student enrichment activities as per the needs of the students
  • To conduct the sessions for the academicians on the areas of their interest
  • To get the best of the persons in their respective fields to interact with the students and the academicians
  • To provide a platform to the various stakeholders to discuss the changes in the education sector and its future roadmap

Scope of Work:

Following are the area on which the Outreach cell focused upon:

  • Regular organization of webinars in association with various schools
  • Organization of summer camps, boot camps and workshops for a limited duration
  • To conduct regular career counseling sessions in schools so that students can make an informed decision

The role of the Outreach cell is to reach out to school students and holistically engage with them. In the present times, children have become conscious about their careers from a very young age. They would not only like to know about the various career options but would also like to pursue their passions. The inquisitiveness in children would compel them to know beyond their academic books. They would like to explore various avenues before taking crucial decisions about their future.

The Outreach cell in DME is collaborating with different schools not only in Delhi NCR but with other schools in Aligarh, Bulandshahar, Fatehabad, Bareilly etc. The activities are targeted to the school children who are studying in Class IX-XII. The cell is engaging with the students by conducting various boot camps, summer schools and webinars.

The boot camps and summer schools are conducted on various topics like working knowledge of MS Office; creative writing; photojournalism etc. These activities help to develop various skills in students which would be important for them in future. The webinars are conducted on general topics like cyber awareness; personality development; stress management, etc. These webinars help in their overall development. The webinars are also conducted specifically on various topics which help them to take conscious decisions regarding their career like Career options in Law/Media/Management; how to crack CLAT/CET; Building Quantitative Aptitude and Vocabulary skills for competitive exams; how to choose a stream after class X etc. These webinars are conducted by the panel of experts and by the people who are leaders in their respective fields.

The Outreach cell actively engaged with Principals, teachers and counselors of schools to get their opinions and views on the changes in the education policy and the examination pattern and how it is going to impact the students. It has an association with various media platforms which helps to link the various stakeholders. The Outreach cell constant endeavor is to help the children in their all-around development with the active collaboration with schools.

Overview

The National Service Scheme (NSS) is an Indian government- sponsored public service program conducted by the Department of Youth Affairs and Sports of the Government of India. Popularly known as NSS, the scheme was launched in Gandhiji’s Centenary year, 1969. Aimed at developing student’s personality through community service, NSS is a voluntary association of young people in Colleges, Universities and at +2 level working for a campus-community linkage. The cardinal principle of the NSS programme is that it is organized by the students themselves, and both students and teachers through their combined participation in community service, get a sense of involvement in the tasks of nation building. The post independence era was marked by an urge for introducing social service for students, both as a measure of educational reform and as a means to improve the quality of educated man- power. The University Grants Commission headed by Dr.Radhakrishnan recommended introduction of national service in the academic institutions on a voluntary basis with a view to developing healthy contacts between the students and teachers on the one hand and establishing a constructive linkage between the campus and the community on the other hand. In India, the idea of involving students in the task of national service dates back to the times of Mahatma Gandhi, the father of the nation. The central theme which he tried to impress upon his student audience time and again, was that they should always keep before them, their social responsibility. The first duty of the students should be, not to treat their period of study as one of the opportunities for indulgence in intellectual luxury, but for preparing themselves for final dedication in the service of those who provided the sinews of the nation with the national goods & services so essential to society. Advising them to form a living contact with the community in whose midst their institution is located, he suggested that instead of undertaking academic research about economic and social disability, the students should do “something positive so that the life of the villagers might be raised to a higher material and moral level”.

The main objectives of National Service Scheme (NSS) are:

  • understand the community in which they work
  • understand themselves in relation to their community
  • identify the needs and problems of the community and involve them in problem-solving
  • develop among themselves a sense of social and civic responsibility

Outreach Cell Overview:

The higher education institutions have the responsibility to nurture the young minds and get them ready to face real-world situations when they step out after completing their formal education. We, at DME, firmly believe that if the youths are guided properly from an early age, then they can do wonders in the respective career fields which they choose for themselves.

Keeping this objective in mind, the Outreach Cell was conceptualized in DME in 2017. The Outreach cell continually strives to reach out to students who are still studying in schools. We conduct boot camps, summer schools and webinars in schools to cover the topics which are generally not taken up within the confines of school curricula.

Objectives of Outreach Cell:

The detailed objectives of the Outreach cell are as follows:

  • To collaborate with schools and curate the student enrichment activities as per the needs of the students
  • To conduct the sessions for the academicians on the areas of their interest
  • To get the best of the persons in their respective fields to interact with the students and the academicians
  • To provide a platform to the various stakeholders to discuss the changes in the education sector and its future roadmap

Scope of Work:

Following are the area on which the Outreach cell focused upon:

  • Regular organization of webinars in association with various schools
  • Organization of summer camps, boot camps and workshops for a limited duration
  • To conduct regular career counseling sessions in schools so that students can make an informed decision

The role of the Outreach cell is to reach out to school students and holistically engage with them. In the present times, children have become conscious about their careers from a very young age. They would not only like to know about the various career options but would also like to pursue their passions. The inquisitiveness in children would compel them to know beyond their academic books. They would like to explore various avenues before taking crucial decisions about their future.

The Outreach cell in DME is collaborating with different schools not only in Delhi NCR but with other schools in Aligarh, Bulandshahar, Fatehabad, Bareilly etc. The activities are targeted to the school children who are studying in Class IX-XII. The cell is engaging with the students by conducting various boot camps, summer schools and webinars.

The boot camps and summer schools are conducted on various topics like working knowledge of MS Office; creative writing; photojournalism etc. These activities help to develop various skills in students which would be important for them in future. The webinars are conducted on general topics like cyber awareness; personality development; stress management, etc. These webinars help in their overall development. The webinars are also conducted specifically on various topics which help them to take conscious decisions regarding their career like Career options in Law/Media/Management; how to crack CLAT/CET; Building Quantitative Aptitude and Vocabulary skills for competitive exams; how to choose a stream after class X etc. These webinars are conducted by the panel of experts and by the people who are leaders in their respective fields.

The Outreach cell actively engaged with Principals, teachers and counselors of schools to get their opinions and views on the changes in the education policy and the examination pattern and how it is going to impact the students. It has an association with various media platforms which helps to link the various stakeholders. The Outreach cell constant endeavor is to help the children in their all-around development with the active collaboration with schools.
