QUEST trains local youth to work as 'Balmitra' to conduct Balbhavan activities. The word Balmitra captures their role effectively - it means 'Friend of the Children'. We identify young persons who have studied at least upto Std. XII, and who have a desire to find a meaningful career opportunity within the village.

Selected Balmitras undergo rigorous training. The training includes theoretical and practical aspects of literacy instruction, math and classroom management. Regular on-site support is provided to them by supervisors and Resource Persons.
