A trained community center staff member guides young learners through activities in a series of two-hour sessions. Each session is divided into action-oriented sections: “Plan It,” “Do It,” “Review It,” and “Share It,” each of which helps develop technical and critical-thinking skills.
Students then work together to collect information, analyze it, and present it to fellow learners, families, and community leaders.

Learners became much more proficient with technology over the course of the program.
Learners gained significan skills in planning, designing, problem-solving, and collaborating within a project-based framework.
Learners were highly engaged and motivated. 97 percent of participant learners complete the Intel® Learn Program—an exceptional rate for a voluntary, community-based program.
The Intel® Learn Program provides opportunities for children in underserved communities to acquire technology literacy, problem-solving, critical thinking, collaboration, and entrepreneurship skills. The program extends learning beyond classrooms to informal environments in community centers.
Through Intel Learn, children in the remote villages of Pulvetta and Singodi gained access to technology for the first time, and—more importantly—applied new skills to solve age-old problems: built a well for water and instituted health education.
In Talkha, 15 year-old Ahmed said, “On my computer at the Center I used the learning that I received in Intel Learn to make a sheet and record of all my dad’s inventory. There is more possible in his store now because he has things more organized and he can now tell which goods sell and which do not.”
