Uable has launched the campus ambassador program that aims to teach students between the ages of 16 and 18 to become entrepreneurs and build communities that can help them pursue their passion. As part of the program, teen ambassadors are chosen to become “Zuckerbergs” and start their own mini social media network. The goal is to have more than 1000 students in India on board by December this year.
The edtech will also connect these ambassadors with mentors from top startups and help them to prioritize internships or fellowships with these brands in the future, the official press release said. The program enables these students to build a community from scratch and learn the ropes of the product including product development, marketing, and user engagement.

“The program aims to bring together all the teen communities that exist in schools, colleges, neighborhoods and other institutions on Uable. These micro-communities within the Uable app can be used to catch up with their friends and alumni, share content, take on challenges, debate, study together, and create memories. The goal is to have more than 1,000 students on board in India by December 2022,” the press release said.
Through the edtech, students have the opportunity to build their influence among their peers and hone their skills in event management, public speaking, promotion and content creation. The teen ambassadors will also be able to manage exciting opportunities for teens such as internships, projects, mentorship and more, it added.

We want to free teens from authority and give them the space to find out who they are and what their interests are. The campus ambassador program is one of several initiatives that bring us one step closer to our mission of demonstrating that teens are made for more.”
