Yuva Sphurti Kendra IT School
Launched in 2007, the Yuva Sphurti Kendra (Youth Inspirational Centre) is a joint initiative between Deep Griha and Tech Mahindra. The project aims to provide up to 1,000 young people from the slums with the skills needed to enter into Pune's booming IT industry.
Open to young men and women aged 18-30, the 3-month courses are run throughout the year at the Family Welfare Centre, Tadiwala Road, six days a week. Lessons run Monday through Saturday, with a morning session dedicated to Spoken English lessons, and Computer Skills are taught in the afternoon from 2pm - 4pm. Every Satuday, the students should also benefit from a Personal Development session to improve their communication skills, build their Resume and practice interview techniques.
Previous graduates from the scheme have gone on to find work in the technology, hospitality and telesales sectors, working with IT companies, in call centres, and as receptionists.
