Hostel life is a preparation to create home away from home. It is where the life of a Gurukul starts, albeit a modern one. It is a balance between the training and the rejuvenation & relaxation. It is where they get grounded, satiated, fulfilled, refreshed and rejuvenated. It’s where they begin to have a sense of belongingness and camaraderie. It’s where the loneliness of life can best be dealt with. It’s where they realize that true independence is the fountain head to experience the love and togetherness in life. At one hand, they begin to experience confidence and freedom to make their own choices and on the other, they begin to realize that they have an inherent ability to bring together a family away from family and inspire support in their life.

Yes, you read it rightly, its inspiration whereby love, togetherness and team building becomes a natural automatic process. A life rooted in freedom, independent choice making, inspiring support from others, taking full responsibility of the past and full of heart felt commitment to its future, is naturally a life of integrity, contribution and creation. The hostel life at Echelon is designed to make this an experiential reality and train every boarder to lead such a life on going way beyond the life at Echelon into their deep future.

Every hostel is provided with a life coach and a mentor.
