talentify provides unique career and educatonal programs, help skill build high-school students to become tutors and connect them with younger students from lower socio-economic families.
talentify brings together young people from very different socio-economic backgrounds and encourages them to help each other. By empowering students to give peer-to-peer tutoring and pass on knowledge they strengthen their social skills and sense of responsibility by providing an alternative to existing tutoring offers at the same time, especially for those who can't afford it. Thus our goal is to establish a sustainable cycle through capacity building nurturing individual talents and help young people reaching their full potential, regardless of their socioeconomic background. To motivate and keep young people in the platform engaging with each other, we combine gamification concepts with an online and offline component. Thus good actions and interactions (e.g. tutoring, attending workshops) in the platform are rewarded with bonus points, which help students reach different levels. Each level offers unique and interesting contents and services they can unlock from talentify. Last but not least we also want to help students after graduating or dropping out of school to find a job or life-path they find fulfilling, by utilizing a value-based approach. By working together with companies and universities offering opportunities for employer branding to reach high potentials right at school we can create another win-win situation.
