Hindu Youth Summit
After four long years, the Hindu Youth Summit – Abhyas’s much-awaited Annual Flagship Event – was conducted offline this time, with a multitude of events and opportunities for students to explore and choose from. The HYS was a grand three-day Summit: an amalgamation of three events, namely the Science Fair, the Marathon, and the Internship Fair. Hindu College is well-known for its commitment towards empowering its students with opportunities to explore and expose themselves to the world of science. Keeping this in mind,
Abhyas’s Hindu Youth Summit was kicked off with the Science Fair on the first day, on the 23rd of March 2023. Professors of Hindu College provided various internships and research opportunities for students pursuing any of the eight degrees in science offered at Hindu. Taking note of the lacunae in prospects for internships in science, Abhyas tapped into this offbeat sphere of work which otherwise remains relatively unexplored in college circuits. Through the Science Fair, Abhyas aimed to give science students the right exposure to their field of specialization. An engaging, immersive science-oriented Treasure Hunt which took place in the campus of Hindu College was also part and parcel of this Science Fair. For the Marathon on the 24th of March, runners including students, professionals, volunteers and conditioned athletes were invited for the 7.3 kms long journey across the Delhi University campus. The theme for the Marathon was 'ParyavaRun,' as the participants ran for the environment. All the proceeds raised from the Marathon were donated to an organization working for environmental causes.
The magnum opus of the Hindu Youth Summit was the Internship Fair, conducted on the 25th of March, which not only served to bridge the gap between prospective recruiters and competent students from all across India but also helped students and companies alike in meeting their internship requirements, with more than 250 opportunities in diversified fields and profiles. With 50+ companies participating in the event, including some of the biggest names in the industry, the Internship Fair was indubitably a grand hit with thousands of interested applicants taking part in the Fair. The smooth and seamless process also received overwhelmingly positive feedback from both firms and students. Prior to this three-day event, the Abhyas Team – and particularly its Media, Public Relations, and Outreach verticals – were engaged in extensive marketing, both online and offline, to ensure that the event sees maximum participation from students across all departments and colleges. To augment the success of the event and garner optimal participation, Abhyas adopted various marketing and outreach strategies for the same. The A-Team leveraged a plethora of social media platforms, such as LinkedIn and Instagram, to create buzz around the event and attract potential participants through a series of posts and reels coalescing entertaining and informative content all in one. The team was also involved in offline marketing and reached out to other colleges in Delhi by means of promoting the event through posters, banners, and flyers to create visibility and promote the event on campus. In conclusion, Abhyas, the Internship Cell's annual flagship event, was a grand success, providing students with opportunities for professional growth and personal development. The Event’s diverse activities, ranging from science-oriented opportunities to a marathon for a social cause and an internship fair, ensured that students with different interests were catered to. The marketing and outreach strategies adopted by the Internship Cell ensured that the event received the necessary visibility and participation. The Hindu Youth Summit serves as a testament to the Internship Cell's commitment to providing students with the necessary exposure to various fields and opportunities to kick-start their careers. With a total footfall amounting to over 3000 students, Abhyas is proud of our achievements and Summit this year, and we sincerely look forward to continuing our ceaseless efforts towards supporting our students in their career aspirations in the years to come.
