Yuva Saathi is a pioneering programme, in which volunteer guides, Yuva Saathi, will serve as tour guides to school children. The programme, designed by the National Museum Institute, intends to make National Museum a place of learning and fun for the young visitors. Yuva Saathis are undergraduate students from colleges of Delhi trained specifically to guide children in National Museum.
Two tours everyday will run for school groups from Tuesdays to Fridays, and four tours on Saturdays and Sundays.
For School Tour Coordinators (Teachers)
A trail of the Museum has been specially designed, keeping school children in focus, and the Yuva Saathis have been trained to take school groups on this trail.
