Teens today have overpacked schedules.
While much is asked of them from extra-curricular activities to
preparing for college, some, depending on socioeconomic standing, may
lack resources to obtain a fulfilling education. Youth programs try
to supplement these gaps in the system, but there is a disconnect
between the initiatives and teens.
Peer gives teens autonomy outside of
their home and school life and help them develop a sense of self. It
comprises three tracks: Look, Find, and Do.
In the Look track, teens
are connected to mentors through videos and social media.
In the Find
track, teens can dive into a particular field of study to see
different roadmaps on how to get there.
And finally, in the Do track,
teens sign up for different youth opportunities, such as free
workshops, community service, or internships within their community
in order to explore their interests.
