About the Fellowship

Light Up’s (EMF) strength has been its approach in delivering curriculum addressing real life situations and concerns that impact the emotional well-being and mental health of students. We customise our curriculum framework based on each school and community space and therefore, our curriculum continues to evolve.

This internship is an opportunity to be a part of our journey towards the prevention of behavioural challenges often leading to early stage mental health issues. The L & T department curates the organisation’s programs and interventions for students and teachers. Driven by a love for knowledge sharing, this team ideates, researches, and curates Light UP’s programs from the scratch and helps bring them to fruition.

This fellowship aims to provide an opportunity to co-facilitate this process by contributing towards the development of socio-emotional skills and the prevention of behavioural challenges in children from various communities that often lead to the early onset of mental health complications.
