To make sure youth have the skills, both life- and work-related, to compete for jobs, QUEST pilots and transfers technologies which assist in educating vulnerable, out of school youth who have no formal vocational training programs and are unlikely to be reintegrated into the education system.

Their programs are:

  • Education: The Education Program focuses on creating enriching learning spaces and experiences for children to build essential skills. 2 lakh students in Samastipur learn under the Anandshala program which integrates with Sarva Sikshan Abhiyan at the state and district level, to ensure that every child stays, engages and learns in school. The organization’s Anandshala program was selected in the top 100 Best Practices in Education by Ministry of Rural Development.
  • Life Skills (MyQuest): MyQuest uses blending learning to deliver innovative materials and strategies that enhance life and work skills among youth. It develops facilitators and enables young people to find confidence and self-awareness, so that they connect with the right careers. Partnering with Microsoft's YouthSpark initiative, a computer science and programming toolkit for youth entering the workforce was developed. In partnership with Godrej, the MyCareer toolkit was developed that aims to help youth explore careers holistically to make informed decisions and develop critical life skills towards career development. 300 trainers enriched by the Myquest reached out to 17,000 youth.
  • Master Coach: Quest worked with Quickstand Studio to research mobile design and implementation of strategies and develop a blueprint for mobile learning adoption for facilitators/students. To enhance the mobile learning roadmap they have designed on-the-job learning for young adults. MasterCoach is a unique blended learning program for facilitators working with youth to give them professional edge in facilitation. So far, 50 MasterCoaches from 8 states have been trained.
