ALTIUS, once started by WMC is evolving into a personal, social and spiritual movement of the youth, Kerala, India. It is imparting quality training to students of various colleges to groom them to be ‘Globally Competent and Socially Committed’ leaders of tomorrow.‘Altius’ is the Latin word for ‘higher’. A celebration of youthful creativity, Altius aims to bring out the leader in every student by enabling him or her to bloom to full capacity. Altius strives diligently to awaken the higher self within every student, to rise higher in their thoughts and lives without losing the values. The world’s population grows older, India will take centre stage in the formation of a new world order. The demographic revolution brings with it a myriad of challenges and opportunities. How well prepared are our youth today to grasp the opportunities that come their way? How skilful are they to tackle the challenges and responsibilities that they will encounter? How well networked are they to pursue their dreams?How can we bring a value system into our lives?
ALTIUS is an attempt to answer all these questions. It aims to develop skills, plan career and to learn how to become a good human being. It aims to create a network founded on communication, learning, creativity and integrity. Our goal is to be instrumental in developing a large pool of young leaders/cadres to influence their respective communities. Altius students will show the difference wherever they are and in whatever they do. In the next ten years Kerala will be revolutionized by this generation with its positive attitude, actions.
Philosophy and Objectives of Altius
The ALTIUS program aims to create globally competent youngsters who can influence others positively, provide effective leadership and become future decision makers of Kerala, India and in the Global context. The way you look and the way you act determines what people think about you. The educated youngsters of today lack the necessary soft skills. Though most of them are good in the core skills, but lose out because of lack of confidence, communication skills and the ability to think rationally and strategically.
So we set our task to make a change among the youth who are still waiting to realize the self. Altius is a celebration of youthful energy and creativity.
Aspires to create globally competent and socially committed leaders from among the youth of kerala.
Aims at bringing out that leader in every student and polish the essential skills. Aims to fulfill these through new training strategies that can successfully overcome the challenges of globalization, technological advancement and socio economic developments.
In longer terms, need to make strategic decisions about the future programmes by involving more in the greater cooperation with other regional, international and community organizations.
Dreams about its ultimate goal that is to develop a large pool of globally competent and socially committed young leaders to influence the world.
