School Social Worker

This is a student care and coordination role for a dedicated professional committed to building and improving relationships between Avasara Academy and our students’ families and playing a crucial role in preparing students for their higher education.

What is Avasara Academy?

Avasara Academy is a nonprofit institution located just outside Pune, India. Avasara is a progressive secondary school intended to educate young women of exceptional promise for a lifetime of leadership and contribution to society. Students are selected to attend the Academy based on merit alone. Those selected will engage in a specialized academic program designed to couple academic excellence (through the Cambridge curriculum) with a focus on leadership, entrepreneurship, sustainability and Indian studies in Standards 6-12.

Avasara will provide its students with extensive educational resources—most of which are not currently offered to high-potential young Indian women—including unique mentorship and internship opportunities to explore their personal strengths and interests. Avasara will continue to nurture these leaders throughout their lives by connecting them to powerful networks that can facilitate larger-scale change. Avasara Academy, therefore, is not just a school but a life-long network that will cultivate innovative, entrepreneurial leaders.

Family and Community Engagement at Avasara Academy

At all points of a student’s educational experience at Avasara, we try to involve parents and families, be that through the Enrolment process, school events such as Annual Day, home visits, and regular parent-teacher conferences and workshops. Nonetheless, our alternative model of education coupled with our fairly remote location makes it challenging to establish the high quality of family-school dialog that is really necessary for students to make the most of their school experience and prepare well for university and career.
