These young leaders will be working on highly entrepreneurial and challenging roles which vary from strategy, innovation, marketing, social media, supply chain management, HR, outreach, business development, website design, communications, finance, product development.

NSEF Authors of change is a one of its kind, a high social impact two-month internship program where students engage their summer solving some of the most pressing problems of social organizations. These students are selected on the basis of their demonstrated passion and commitment towards social change, leadership experience and their aspiration to become change agents for their society.

The program will also create a network of young leaders who will be provided with access to mentors and experts from the sector. During the internship these authors learn from each other through regular interactions, sharing knowledge through blogs and other platforms. The program culminates with a two-day transformational leadership immersion boot camp, abuzz with interactive sessions, lectures, case studies, capacity building sessions, felicitations and the networking amongst each other.

Sessions are handled by people from diverse backgrounds like social entrepreneurs, business consultants, and policy makers and will span a wide spectrum of topics instilling inspiration, wisdom and offering unparalleled opportunities to learn, connect and influence.


Gaurav Makkar, Director of National Social Entrepreneurship Forum said, “Last year we received approximately 1500 applications for 50 odd positions in about thirty partner social enterprises. Students from some of the best institutes in India like IIM’s, IIT’s, NIT’s St. Stephens, St Xavier’s, Hong Kong University were a part of this program. There were plenty of learning opportunities for these students to not only work at the grassroots but also get involved in some sort of strategic decision making processes of these organizations.”

To achieve this goal, NSEF has students chapters at prestigious institutions like Tata Institute of Social Sciences, IIM’s, IIT’s, BITS etc. and has emerged as one of the premier platform for students interested in Social entrepreneurship.
