In this 3-week, life-transforming Acara course, you will learn the skills and mindsets needed to address complex grand challenges while exploring Bangalore, one of the world’s true mega-cities. Take classes with Indian students as you learn about innovative solutions and work on real community problems. 

The applications for the program are currently open and we would advise you to apply sooner rather than later. The deadline is February 10. The application process is first come first serve and will only be accepting a maximum of 15 applicants, so please be sure to apply for this opportunity over winter break if you’re interested!
