Dell Youth Learning Program
The partnership between DELL and HOPE foundation has now reached 13 years (from April 2006). It has been a thriving endeavour since it has helped us to empower more than 70,000 students/youth get digitally equipped and empowered.
Through ‘Dell Youth Learning Program‘, the focus is on equipping the students with the 21st Century Digital Skills available with an emphasis on refining the learning outcomes in schools by providing them access to technology.
For the year 2019-20, the program envisions a holistic approach in providing an enabling environment to the 9500 students and 500 teachers.
Benefits of the Program:
1. Increasing the concentration levels of the students, thereby directly refining and enhancing the students’ learning outcomes.
2. Reduce absenteeism due to a lack of proper restroom facilities or due to an absence of playing equipment, or even due to broken benches
3. Converting existing partnered schools to “Dell Model Schools” that will focus NOT ONLY on providing academic education through technology and professional development of the teachers in technology, but it will also have additional components of WASH program and Skill development program for the students.
Besides the above, the current computer training centres supported by DELL will be converted to Dell Model Skilling Centres, where technology skills of 300 youth will be developed by training them in technical jobs that are focused on specific skills directed towards employment through direct engagement.
