About the course

It’s a unique opportunity offered by PUKAR for Mumbai’s (Mumbai Metropolitan Region) Youth to understand and experience the city through research. This is a year-long activity-based weekend course which offers an avenue to identify, understand and study the issues of local communities.

The course aims to nurture the knowledge, talent and passions of youth and promotes their right to research, knowledge production and knowledge ownership. The knowledge which they create at the end of the course also gives them confidence to become informed decision makers and leaders of their communities.

Recognized by the Centre of Lifelong Learning and Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS), it fosters PUKAR’s core principles of empowering communities by involving youth in the change-making process and bears semblance to the principles that TISS as an institution is also anchored on. This collaboration gives youth the opportunity to be validated by two significant research institutions.

Through this proposed model, we wish to continue involving youth cutting across socio-economic-cultural hierarchies and enable them to use research as a means to stand between policy and practice. The course uses experiential learning and participatory pedagogies to make learning more effective and transforming. Thus, the course has a flexible design which aims at the inclusion of adult learners who come from diverse backgrounds and offers multiple exits at different stages.

In short, the course will be offered in a ladder manner, starts from Certificate level to a Diploma, the learner will have the option to exit after earning a ‘Certificate degree’ in one semester (Theory) or a ‘Diploma degree’ after successful completion of a 2 semesters (Theory and Research Submission).
