Uniqueness of Avanti:
Avanti is an award winning social initiative started by IIT and Harvard University alumni. Their work has been recognized by Ashoka, The Draper Richards Kaplan Foundation, Echoing Green and the PanIIT Alumni Organization.
Avanti’s Learning Centers provide low- and middle-income students a world-class science and mathematics education in Class XI and XII. The centers have no trained teachers and very little conventional lecturing. In their place, we focus on teaching students how to learn from books and their peers – resources that are more abundant, accessible and consistent in quality.
They run classes as after-school programs for 2 years covering Grade XI and XII. Over the past year, they’ve shown that our students outperform the most expensive coaching classes in the countryDate posted: April 11, 2014
