Talk to Alumni – Policy BootCamp

Talk to Alumni

Talk to Alumni program aims to help the selected candidates make an informed decision about the Policy BootCamp (PBC), in which selected delegates can talk on alumni from the past Policy BootCamps over an email.

We believe our alums are the best fit to get the questions about the experiential nitty-gritty of the PBC answered. They can share information about their PBC experiences and give the delegates a firsthand account of the value addition of the program and how it prepared them for a career ahead. But their expertise isn’t limited to joining the PBC- delegates should feel free to ask them about anything from how to make the maximum from BootCamp to knowing the organizing team better 😉
