Implementation methodologies

This Initiative is carried out over the Internet as well as offline. Students and youths are approached by both offline and online to pass on the information about the Internships and Project initiatives provided by TakenMind Organisation. As soon as a student gets interested in learning a new set of skills via TakenMind, all necessary details are collected and a specific date for the Internship is provided to the student. This way, TakenMind keeps in touch with the student at necessary times. During the Start of the Program for Youth and Students, TakenMind exercises great care to deliver high-quality lectures and ensure critical understanding of concepts among the youth. The information spread over Internet involves contacting volunteers, updating volunteers of the new programs via e-mails, SMS.
