With the goal of connecting students to Harvard University student instructors, experienced faculty, and well-known thought leaders around the world, Harvard Student Agencies (HSA) has collaborated with Learn with Leaders to launch three exclusive programs for Indian high-school students (grades 9- 12).
“We are so excited to partner with Learn with Leaders to bring our courses to India,” says Austin Kwoun, Managing Director of The Academies, the academic enrichment programs organized by Harvard Student Agencies. “We’re proud to offer curricula that allow students to explore various pre-professional fields, and we hope that the students in attendance can leave the programs feeling enriched and invigorated about their professional futures.”
“This partnership will provide high school students in India an opportunity to learn from and get mentored by students at Harvard University. What is unique about these programs is that they are highly interactive and have small class size, which ensures students get individual attention. We started to Learn with Leaders with the aim to help students gain international networks that get enabled through these unique programs. Many students in India may not get the opportunity to study abroad, and our vision is to bring them the best right here in the country,” says Gunjan Aggarwal, Co-founder, Learn with Leaders.
Shubham Gupta, Co-founder, Learn with Leaders, opines: “I love working with students, and the HSA programs provide students with a great learning experience. There was no one to guide me when I turned entrepreneur; so what drives me is that I can be helpful to students in high school. At Learn with Leaders, we focus on curating exclusive learning programs spanning diverse subject areas and skills that students need in order to succeed in a dynamic environment. By exposing students to different ideas in high school we hope to foster interest in multiple domains that could lead to more informed choices in future.”
