Residential Bridge Camps
Vidya Poshak organizes 9 days Residential Bridge Camps that help students achieve optimal success during and after their college education. The RBCs aim at bringing positive change in the overall personality of the students. The camps also stress on Skills, Knowledge and Attitude apart from Career guidance and counseling (both career and personal). The camps can be of either 5 days or 9 days duration. RBCs strive to bridge the gap between the academia and career goals of students. It augments the needs of students which they rarely get in their formal schooling.
Till date 8400 students have been trained through 154 Residential Bridge Camps. Following are the theme of the Camps.
Theme and Curriculum of the Camps

- ELIP (English Language Improvement)-ELIP camps were focused on speaking functional English fluently with the help of audio video clips. By doing skits and dramas students got stage courage. In this camp we trained 77 students.
Employment Readiness Program;
This was a new major initiative to help prepare the Final Year Students for their placement when they would complete their graduation.
The students who wanted to pursue jobs in either government or private sector were given training in Aptitude skills, interview preparation and communication skills. After the camp, the students provided their resume in a standard template and started receiving regular tests for them to practice.
We are now planning to conduct pre-placement training sessions to help them further. In this Camp also we conducted 2 camps for degree III year students trained 109 students.
