DIYguru onboard DIY Mentors who are experienced in a particular skillset. They deploy one mentor to each partner High school & College. DIY Mentors are embedded in area schools and work with students by teaching courses, providing coaching and counselling, and applying maker culture change techniques to motivate students.
Due to the lack of proper mentoring and exposure to tier 2 and tier 3 colleges, students have to face difficulty in finding out the appropriate mentors for their projects and this is when this platform comes in handy.
DIYguru has a separate portal for competitions in makers field where students can get to know about the upcoming and internationally acclaimed events.
DIYguru provide mentorship to students to take responsibility so that they’d be able to do things themselves just as a preparation for their own future. The DIY Mentors begins with a listening tour of students, faculty, and community members and then helps to craft one project for the school or college. Upon doing so, they build a DIY Team of students called DIYguru Fellows. DIYguru Fellows subsequently develop and launch their own DIYguru Projects – individual projects that the students develop over the course of a year or more with the help of expert DIY mentor. DIY Fellows are also charged with responsibility of serving as “DIY Mentors” for their peers, changing school/College culture through step-by-step collaboration among the community to build a variety of projects. Over time, DIYguru Mentors work with hundreds of students to engage them in the process of helping them to discover a big idea, believe in themselves and each other, and turn their dream into reality.
