YOUNG AMBASSADORS OF MITHIBAI COLLEGE (AUTONOMOUS) RAISE THE COLLEGE FLAG HIGHER AND HIGHER!!!
Happiness is found in helping others.

In the vibrant student life at Mithibai College (Autonomous), YAMI students add the brightest color!!!
YAMI (Young Ambassadors of Mithibai) are role models to other students. YAMI comprises of students who feel passionately for the institute and are able to share their knowledge and experience to motivate and encourage other young people. They are current students who act as ambassadors of the college to the outside community. At Mithibai College (Autonomous) YAMI students are leading by example by answering admission-related queries of parents and students. They are helping parents by explaining to them the process to secure admissions in the different academic programs at Mithibai. As ambassadors for Mithibai College, YAMI students are helping prospective students learn more about the college as well as their programme of choice. Students helping other students is a powerful technique. Collaborative learning uses this approach to achieve content-focused and process-oriented goals, both of which are important for college learning success. At Mithibai College, we strongly feel that by helping others, students get a brief glimpse of a new perspective. They learn to be more compassionate and understanding, not just with others but also with themselves.
The YAMI (Young Ambassadors of Mithibai) student body is the brain-child of Mithibai’s dynamic and visionary Principal, Dr Rajpal Shripat Hande. Dr Hande strongly feels that the reign of the college should be in the hands of the students who can live up to the college motto of ‘Higher still and higher’’. Sir also believes that students should be encouraged to play an active role in the decision-making processes at the college.
YAMI students thus get an excellent opportunity to gain valuable work experience-develop skills in preparation for their future career, build confidence and encourage personal development, whilst greatly enhancing the student experience.

Shaolin Kung-Fu Workshop organized by

Young Ambassadors of Mithibai (YAMI)

under the aegis of RUSA-2 Component 8 grant on 22nd November 2019

Attack is best form of defence! So say several groups of martial art trainers.  Also, self-defense is not just a martial art. It does not require years of practice to get right and might not look very elegant but can dramatically increase one’s chances of coming out of a sticky situation, safe. Self-defence is not just a set of techniques, it’s a state of mind and it begins with the belief that you are worth defending. To apprise the students about the importance of Self Defence, Young Ambassadors of Mithibai (YAMI) student group organised a Shaolin Kung-Fu Workshop for female students. The Workshop was conducted by Mr. Nishanth Raj, a trained Shaolin Kung-Fu expert. Sixty female students in two batches of 30 students each benefitted from the workshop.
YAMI STUDENTS’ VISIT ST. CATHERINE’S ORPHANAGE ON OCASSION OF CHILDREN’S DAY 2019

On Children’s Day, 14th November, 2019, Young Ambassadors of Mithibai decided to celebrate the occasion by visiting an orphanage in Mumbai and giving a share of our happiness to the less fortunate children who reside there.
The orphanage houses around 250 children. YAMI students were given a tour of the orphanage by a sister from the Daughters of the Cross, who have been running the orphanage since 1927. Students were briefed about as to how the orphanage was founded in 1922 by Ida Dickenson as an initiative to shelter homeless girls and that latter on it was taken over by the Daughters of the Cross at the behest of the Bishop of Bombay. Over all these decades, the sisters have taken in countless children, young girls and unmarried mothers, all brought to them by several NGOs and the police, who entrust them with their protection.
YAMI students donated - several types of dals, flour, notebooks, chocolates, pens, sketch pens, sanitary napkins, soaps, toothpastes, crayons, biscuits, sweets, etc. YAMI students were enriched by learning about the kindness and compassion with which they selflessly do good for others.
