YES BANK has partnered with Akanksha Foundation to strengthen educational infrastructure for the under-privileged through volunteering as part of the Akanksha Mentor Program. The Bank is actively engaged with the students of Akanksha Foundation through the following program activities:

1. Employee volunteers from the Bank are acting as mentors for students in the age group of 12-16 years, associated with Akanksha Foundation. The mentors provide weekly sessions for career orientation, personality development, and academic guidance to students. These two-hour long weekly sessions are conducted at the Bank's corporate headquarters.
2. Beyond the 'class-room' discussions. Students are also taken on exposure visits and excursions aimed at enhancing the overall learning experience.
3. Career Development Support. This takes the Mentor Program a step further. The mentors also provide career development advice and support to Akanskha students.
