Vikas Kendra, an initiative of Centre for Social Activities under Jayantian Extension Service intends to impart skill enhancement training to the needy students in select schools near the vicinity of Kristu Jayanti College. Setting apart the traditional classroom methodology Vikas Kendra focuses on experiential learning, skill development, value education and creativeness of students through innovative learning strategies.
The programme was framed for one semester. Due to demand from schools we continued the programme in the next semester also. The select schools for this programme were Sri Sidhartha Srinivasa Higher Primary School, Government Higher Primary School Narayanapura. The classes were taken from Monday to Friday. The schedule for the classes was from 2.00- 3.30pm. Spoken English, Computer literacy, Basic Mathematics, Science, Science Modelling, Technical Education, Cultural Activities, Sports, Art and Craft were given importance in Vikas Kendra.
35 volunteers have been selected for the Vikas Kendra programme after screening test. The selected volunteers have undergone an orientation and various training sessions. Without disturbing the regular college hours, volunteers visited the assigned schools and engaged classes.
The impact of the programme is visible from the request from schools to continue the programme in the coming semesters also.
