What do you plan on doing with your old smartphone?
In the constantly changing pandemic-affected world of today, one response we developed is to re-invent the EduTennis program as an online-offline hybrid program. The focus of the program remains around the skill sets that make youth employable and enable them to be self-reliant.
To make sure the program reaches children, we have launched a campaign called #OldPhone4NewFuture to collect old smartphones from donors, and use these to deliver the program to the children we work with.
We are also taking this opportunity to share with our supporters the vision of EduTennis. Remember, this program has the potential to help these government-aided school children to break the cycle of poverty and lead better lives!

At EduTennis, we believe that who children and young people are tomorrow is essentially the outcome of how they are raised and nurtured today. Our coaches and curriculum provide an enabling environment where they can fully embrace their identity and gain all the skills they need to navigate their lives and careers tomorrow.
The program is designed for government and low-income schools and aimed at teaching 21st century life skills using the game of tennis. Using a curriculum developed by expert tennis players and coaches, students will be expected to learn some of the world's most relevant life skills, such as decision-making, problem-solving, creative thinking, lateral thinking, communication, interpersonal skills, empathy, assertiveness, equanimity, resilience and coping with stress. Over a period of time, the programme is expected to increase the employability and confidence of participating students, ultimately contributing to increased resilience against poverty and gender-based discrimination.
The program is founded by the Amba Dalmia Foundation Trust, New Delhi, which has been running programs to enable marginalised communities to break the cycle of poverty since 2013.

How to Become an Exceptional EduTennis Coach
Coaching isn't a skill set one is born with, it takes a certain set of skills and a lot of experience. Why? Because good coaching means engaging students in a process of self-discovery.
It all starts with self-reflection. What do you bring to the students' learning journey? As you begin coaching, document your experiences in terms of your strengths, your weaknesses and your boundaries. Keep track of the techniques you implement – which ones work and which ones don’t. Reflecting on yourself and your work will help you discover what makes you stand out among other coaches.
Become an EduTennis Trainer of Trainers
Do you have expertise in trainings, life skills, or coaching and a desire to mentor others? We are on the lookout for senior professionals who can design and deliver short, 2-4 hours long trainings on life skills such as decision making, communications and technical skills such as financial literacy for EduTennis coaches.
If this interests you, please contact us and we will join the dots between your area of interest and the ongoing training we have in place to create more EduTennis coaches.
