MyQuest

Dream. Discover. Connect. 

MyQuest uses blended learning to deliver innovative materials and strategies to develop facilitators and enable young people to connect with the right careers and achieve their dreams.

About

Our Program

With millions of youth preparing to enter the workforce every year in India, we engage with an expanding network of educational and vocational institutions to ensure these youth receive access to critical life, occupational and career development skills.

We help young people gain confidence in their aspirations to make informed career decisions and effectively navigate their personal and professional spaces. MyQuest impacts youth between the ages of 18 and 30 in rural and urban contexts, primarily from disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds who are in urgent need of employment and skills.

Our Goals

With the aim to impact 250,000 youth by 2020, MyQuest wants young people across the social spectrum to confidently navigate the personal and professional spaces, with better access to knowledge and work opportunities.

It seeks to help young people enter the world of work with the right domain skills, and the capacity to make informed career choices.

Our Strategy

The MyQuest strategy is three-pronged and targets not only youth, but facilitators, and the organizations that support and employ them.

Through Knowledge Creation, Partnerships and Capacity Building, we aim to transform learning environments across educational institutions, including vocational training centers, Industrial Training Institutes, and undergraduate colleges.

The cycle that MyQuest creates is a self-sustaining one; an environment that allows for all stakeholders to perform their individual roles and support each other effectively for deeper and greater impact.

  • Self-Learning

Youth access engaging learning and work opportunities; they grow their network

  • Learning Environments

Well-trained facilitators create high-quality learning environments for youth

  • Sustained Practices

Diverse partners learn to adapt the approach for their contexts

Our Approach

With a powerful combination of digital self-learning and classroom activities supported by innovative materials and strategies, MyQuest motivates trainers to learn new facilitation skills, enables students to build tangible, market-oriented skills, and discover confidence and self-awareness.
