Innovation Title : Involving community in improving learning outcomes: Youth mentors for students

Description - To improve regularity and to provide students specialized attention, involve the community youth in mentoring the students.    1. Form an organization/body and recruit members from the school staff and village youth. 2. Mobilize youth with B.Ed. and PTC degrees to volunteer in the school. 3. Allocate classrooms to mobilized youth volunteers. 4. Youth volunteers to assist teacher in allocated classroom. 5. Appoint volunteers as mentors for two students each. 6. Volunteers to monitor progress of their set of students through home visits, discussions with parents, checking test scores, etc. 7. Honour village elders in school. 8. Involve entire community in organizing an annual day in school.   Community involvement increases accountability of the schooling system and improves learning outcomes as a result of monitoring by multiple stakeholders. Mentorship helps students get personalized attention, leading to quicker academic progress. It also provides educated youth a chance to volunteer and be of service to the community. Forming an informal association is crucial to give the youth a special identity.
