About 360+

360+ is a group of emerging leaders of US and Indian origin connected by their common experience working in India’s development sector over the last fifteen years. We have joined together to leverage our skills and knowledge to collaborate on diverse projects of common interest. We work primarily in South Asia.

360+ focuses on providing learning opportunities through travel to young high school students . The students who are selected to participate come from communities who otherwise do not get access to such opportunities . Our primary projects are the Leadership Collective and R2Urban.  Leadership Collective started as a fully funded study abroad opportunity for US High School students. In 2017 it will include Indian students and it is intended to add students from other countries in the future . R2Urban provides rural students in India with an exposure to an urban environment to see and understand similarities and differences.

None in the group had ever taken a flight :only  a few had ever seen the sea: none had been to a large manufacturing plant: none had ever had a personal interaction with a film celebrity . Over 4 days the group did all that and more . Their experiences are captured by the group itself
