Revolutionizing Youth Development
Based in research, Ambition's bite-sized courses are designed to help teens develop the skills needed to succeed in today's world.
Ambition is a mobile life readiness platform to help teens thrive.
Ambition meets teens where they're at - on their phones - and empowers them to take their personal development into their own hands. Teens can complete courses anytime, anywhere, and at their own pace.
As teens progress through courses on Ambition, they record reflection videos on the app. Each reflection video above was recorded by a teen after completing a 7-day course on Ambition.
There's a saying, "If you give someone a fish, you'll feed them for a day, but if you teach someone to fish, you'll feed them for a lifetime."
Sadly, the current education system isn't teaching kids how to "fish" in the 21st century.
On Ambition, teens develop executive function, social-emotional, and other life skills needed to "fish" in today's world.
Why these skills? Research shows that executive function, a set of cognitive skills that include working memory, attention, and self-control, is a higher predictor of success than test scores, IQ, and socioeconomic status.
Ambition Focus Areas
While Ambition covers a wide range of skills, we focus on three main areas to help teens thrive in life.
Get into and graduate from college
Find, acquire, and grow in your career
Manage your money, health, and relationships
Why these areas? Most teens will either go to college, enroll in a trade school, or join the workforce immediately after high school, and all teens are expected to become responsible adults who contribute to society. Ambition empowers teens to take control of their future by teaching them the skills needed to be successful.
