The mission of Hippocampus Learning Centres (HLC) is to change the trajectory of the lives of underserved children through high quality education. Hippocampus believes that providing high quality; affordable, child-centric education, in an engaging learning environment is one of the best ways to enable children overcome persistent inequality.
HLC is an offshoot of Hippocampus Reading Foundation (HRF), a pioneer in libraries in India. HLC started operations in 2011. Its initial program was preschools for children between 3 to 6 years. It has rapidly grown to become the largest enterprise in the country running preschools for underserved children. The current outreach also makes Hippocampus amongst the top 10 preschool operators in India. In 2014, Hippocampus started its primary grades program. In the last 5 years, a total of 29,500 years of education has been imparted. In 2016-17, more than 600 teachers have been trained on our methodology.
HLC has embarked on a new initiative called the Emerging Education Leader program. This is a 2 year leadership program for young leaders, with an intrinsic interest in building a career in education for underserved communities. The ideal participant has a bachelor’s degree from a reputed college and has a couple of years of work experience, preferably in Education.
The structure of the program contains a series of short-term and long-term projects. Every participant will engage in 10 short term projects and 2 long term projects during this 24 month period. Through these projects, participants gain experience in project management, consumer and institutional sales, curriculum development, training, IT systems, data analysis and fund raising. The participants are assigned a mentor who is a senior leader in the organization. The participants have to present to external experts on a 6 monthly basis.
Each participant is paid a monthly stipend of Rs. 30,000 per month. The program is based out of Bangalore, but the participants need to be willing to travel around the country. At the end of the program, participants are ready to become entrepreneurs or play leadership positions in education organizations.
Interested candidates are requested to send in their resumes to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The selection process consists of essays, and interviews. The application process opens on April 6th. The list of final candidates will be communicated by April 30th.
HLC is looking to start this program with 3-4 fellows this year. The start date of the program is May 15 2017.
