Double Takes: Cellphone Workshops by Teenagers for Adults

The Dutch company Bellendoejezo (roughly translated to “this is how you make the call”) has organized cellphone workshops for adults that are taught by teens.

“While you may never be too old to learn, when it comes to gadgets, you can never be too young to teach. A Dutch initiative is taking advantage of kids’ innate cell phone proficiency by training them as ‘phone coaches’ and getting them to transfer their skills to older users.”

While the program benefits adults through increased cellphone knowledge, it also strives to benefit the teens by boosting self-esteem and providing them with work experience.
