The Starboard Project @thestarboardproject is something very close to my heart. Its journey started more than year back with a series of discussions between my Friend @amitzee & me talking about the massive influence of celebrities and how it can be channelized to inspire children to be the best versions of themselves. The idea took many shapes and forms but we settled that we would use celebrities as catalysts to teach Life Skills & SEL since that would help children learn what made the celebrities who they are first hand and use some of those learnings in their daily lives.
Starboard address two large problems -
a) Children today are far more stressed, depressed, suffer from hyper anxiety, peer pressure and more and there is a serious mental health epidemic that is underway
b) Most graduates in India currently do not posses a majority of the Soft Skills that are largely required to fulfill job criteria. These skills form a majority of the required competencies that organizations are seeking out in employees nowadays.
TSP has touched thousands of students across India in such a short time and will continue to Its journey to Inspire Young Minds 🙏🏼 #TheStarboardProject#Insipireyoungminds#lifeskills#softskills#socialemotionallearning#celebrities#influence#school#kids#education#needofthehour
