The program impact on teachers helped them comprehend ways of dealing with students relating to behavioral and classroom management issues. There was awareness and a shift in mind sets relating to the possibilities of being ‘open and approachable’ rather than instilling ‘discipline by being authoritarian’. This I see as a positive shift in 'educational practices' for our teachers in suburban and rural schools.
The students revealed in the ‘positive learning environment’ created by the Explorers team, where each student felt emotionally and physically safe to share their emotions, thoughts, ideas and dreams with others in their group. The program impact delivered the necessary outcomes intended, through play, gaming and creative language and art expressions addressing different learners on the program.
What was heartening to experience was a reflective circle time session where a thought process triggered off the meaning of the term ‘future dreams’ and what it meant to each one of them with regard to it being a career option. The result of this circle time concluded with the understanding that they need not choose a career or life based on only societal / parental expectations, but should explore options that interests them….things they ‘like and enjoy’. It was exhilarating to see the students dream and share their life expectations without pressures of any sort.Overall the program had a fun learning environment, a diverse range of different activities, powerful reflective sessions and debriefs that caught my attention. I would highly recommend your programs.

The Program has broadened my understanding of experiential education. I have a school camp coming up and I am looking forward to it and will be putting in everything new that I've learnt now.

Thanks to the Explorers for conducting this course and to Vishwas Sir for being such a wonderful trainer!
I came with no experience or knowledge on facilitation / experientialtraining and really enjoyed each day of the course learning and doing new realms.
Our whole batch was full of interactive and helpful people and I would really like to be in touch with all you guys!
I conducted my 1st facilitation session yesterday with the help of Rohit for a bunch of my friends / family members. It was an 'awesome'1st time with feedback from them for improvement.
Do keep me updated on Module 2 training. I am definitely interested.

I can't believe that it's been a year that we attended CEEP together with a bunch full of zest. The learning's have helped me to change certain perceptions to a certain level... No more conditioning (like what I have been raised...was never allowed to think or understand the process, just accept the result... "this is it" or "this has to be this way"...).
Experiential learning and the simulations does help one to think rationally and accept the results without being biased....though there were some moments where we didn’t get any result (mix n match placards).
