India graduates millions every year, but too few are fit to hire. (Wall Street Journal)

Giving disadvantaged youth a path to professional jobs

For young people preparing to enter the workplace we provide a free one-year intensive coaching program that dramatically changes their income potential and gives them access to higher paying professional jobs.

In the developing world the majority of students do not enjoy the benefits of a good quality education. Far too many young people reach the work place without adequate tools, knowledge and the mindset that would allow them to access and succeed in quality jobs. We believe that with effective tools and training, all people have the strength to improve their lives and the lives of those in their community.

Our intensive coaching program focuses on two principal areas:

a) Professional English skills, to international standards.

b) Non-cognitive skill development.

This includes developing critical thinking skills, grit, effective communication, goal setting, locus of control, dealing with uncertainty, drive, discipline, self-esteem, self-motivation, self-control, overcoming fear of failure, a growth mindset, being cooperative, patience, dealing with conflict productively and resilience.

The program is approximately 5 years old and has surmounted significant logistical challenges, as the platform evolved through a series of iterations. It is completely free of cost and we only ask students to commit to attendance and completion.

About 16,000 students come into our class rooms every day in batches of no more than 20 at a time and attend one session per day.

Each session is of one hour forty five minute duration and the students attend six days a week for fifty two weeks. Each session is split into three segments that include computer-based training, work-book based learning and activity-based learning.

275+ teachers staff our 150+ class rooms and these are spread out within a 100 mile radius of our staff training facility in New Delhi. Eight sessions are held at every classroom every day and each teacher conducts four sessions per day. Our teaching staff is mostly in their 20ís and for the majority of them it is their first job.

The teachers are supervised / assisted by managers, supervisors, mentors, student mobilizers, student evaluators, computer repair technicians, staff trainers, property managers, music based learning coaches, supplies delivery team, real estate scouts, housekeeping staff, etc.

While a formal multi-year evaluation of the impact of the program is yet to be completed, anecdotally program graduates report they have made significant progress in their education / career.

We invite collaborations in a wide area of work and interests. Write us at if you wish to explore and possibly join / assist the FEA project.
