Kalam Leadership Certification Program

India’s first certification program that enriches leadership experience

“You were born with wings. Don’t crawl. Learn to use them to fly and fly.”
– Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam

Based exclusively on the foundation of Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam’s ideas, Kalam Leadership Certification Program (KLCP) is India’s first certification program that enriches leadership experience through its unique curriculum and fieldwork components. With our motto of “Knowledge Is Power”, we have been creating change leaders across the country to drive positive transformation at all levels through the reformation of the system. Dr. Kalam wanted to be remembered as a teacher, and the program takes his dream forward by including an empowering series of actual lectures delivered by him at various national and international fora.

The curriculum of the program also includes live as well as recorded sessions by eminent personalities from various sectors and academicians from across the globe, who impart their wisdom and knowledge to selected participants. Post completion of online training, participants undertake on-ground activities that embody missions such as improving access to education, opening libraries, organizing blood donation camps, undertaking tree plantation drives and spreading awareness on the importance of education, water conservation, climate change, environment conservation, gender sensitization.

KLCP shaped me as an individual and gave me a distinct identity because of the varied experiences of grassroots it exposed me to. It inspired me to have a larger than life goal and gave me the spirit to work towards them. I am extremely grateful to the Kalam Centre team for selecting and mentoring me during the entire journey.

If I had to summarize my journey in a few words, I would say ‘engaging work which makes you grow as a person’. Working as a KLCP fellow makes us understand life and life skills together. Some days situations were stressful as we worked closely with children living in slums but the sense of satisfaction one gets after helping them is all you need. Thank you Srijan sir and team at Kalam Centre for giving me the opportunity to give back to society.

KLCP is much more than a certification program. As a KLCP fellow, I got the opportunity to take a closer view on diversified issues, and also identify speedy solutions to those problems. I thank the team at the Kalam Centre for giving me the privilege to become a part of this program, and inculcating within me the pertinent lessons of service and empathy.
