Avanti is an award winning, well funded social enterprise established by IIT alumni in 2010.  You will have the opportunity to work with an incredibly motivated team to provide an affordable, high-quality education to disadvantaged students aspiring to study at India’s top colleges. At present, we have 25 full-time employees &100 volunteers, and support over 800 students in 8 locations across across 4 school systems – Corporation of Chennai, NavodayaVidyalayas, Tibetan Administration and Haryana Government Schools.

At Avanti, we implement a unique pedagogy called Peer Instruction®that reduces teacher dependence and enables collaborative learning. Students consume lecture content in the form of recorded videos and reading material before attending class. In place of conventional lectures, classroom time is used to get students to work collaboratively on problem sets and clarify doubts by interacting with subject experts. Over the past 2 years, we have shown that our students outperform the most expensive after-school programs in the country at less than one-fourth the cost.

Avanti is a PanIIT Alumni initiative, winner of Stanford BASES 2010 and recipient of the Echoing Green, Ashoka and Draper Richards Kaplan Fellowships. Our academic board is chaired by Prof. Eric Mazur, Dean of Applied Physics at Harvard.
