Rashtram guides and incubates the enduring journey of a nation builder with intellectual rigour and a bias for action. A highly engaged, vibrant community of selfless individuals, passionate about Bharat and international affairs, Rashtram’s Alumni network is the best brand ambassadors of our vision for civilisational leadership.
Since 2014, we have touched 15,000+ young minds with a wide variety of policy education programmes across the world. The graduates from our full-time programmes form our Alumni. From our first full-time programme launched in May 2015, the Alumni network today stands at 1800+ spread across 150+ districts of India.
Our Alumni come from various walks of life and have gone on to become agents of change in numerous sectors. By investing in young individuals from diverse backgrounds, we focus on systemic, long-term reforms by working on public policy, governance and institutional frameworks of the nation.
CAN brings together local activists, student leaders, politicians, academicians, and scholars who are seeking sustainable change in our society.
Every month a host of webinars are produced by Rashtram to further foster knowledge transfer and help alumni better network with each other.
Rashtram helps all its alumni connect with various organisations in different sectors for internship and employment opportunities.
…due to the lack of quantifiable metrics, it is not easy to measure the progress of the Rashtram’s mission. Given this limitation in identifying the intangible impact on alumni, we have attempted to define our success as the success of young changemakers. We have kept our focus on providing/arranging possible assistance in their respective life journeys.
The Alumni Committee was founded in 2019. The objective was to ensure better engagement with Alumni so that there is a good understanding of their needs and thus better support by the organisation. The committee consists of a Core Team and two sub councils – Sectoral and Zonal. The Core Team works closely with the Rashtram team and presides over various functions of the Sectoral and Zonal Council.
Being part of (Rashtram’s) Good Governance Yatra gave me the ability to look at various social problems from a public policy lens. (What) I learnt and also saw in action in the Yatra, continues to give me inspiration whenever I am confronted by an enigma.
The idea of bringing people together from so many diverse backgrounds, living together, being present in that activity, 24 hrs, that is something very good. Because, then you can collaborate much better, move forward.
My dream turned into reality after joining VIF as a delegate in PBC17. Shobhit Sir and his team guided me throughout. VIF continues to be a strong pillar of guidance in both my professional and personal lives to achieve success and contribute towards nation-building.
