Chapter One: On-Campus Weekend Classes
The first chapter of the Ambassadors for Change Programme was conducted in the academic year 2019-20. The six-month long programme lasted from September 2019 to March 2020, and 18 student volunteers from across all schools of LUMS conducted English and Mathematics classes for a cohort of 50 TCF alumni on the weekends. The model of the programme included interactive in-class activities and periodic assessment tools to gauge student performance.
To officially start the CBS Ambassadors for Change Programme, 2019 - 20, CBS organized an Orientation Session for CBS volunteers and TCF Alumni on September 20, 2019. The Orientation Session was a fun and interactive session in which CBS Director, Dr. Zehra Waheed, the CBS team and the Ambassadors interacted with the students they will be teaching during this 6-month-long programme.
On January 2, 2020, CBS collaborated with Shehri Pakistan and Chiraagh to conduct two interesting sessions for students of the TCF-CBS Ambassadors for Change Programme 2019-20. The first session by Shehri Pakistan was an interactive crash course on government structures which was designed to increase students’ awareness about their fundamental rights as citizens of Pakistan. This informative session was followed by a series of fun activities planned by the Chiraagh team which imparted valuable lessons on the importance of teamwork and creativity.
