Our youth portfolio has one aim in mind. To create and deliver programs which clearly link to tangible outcomes, be it for employability, better access to work opportunities or to increase in their happiness and well-being.
Along with a network of partners, our programs aim to impact the lives of thousands of youth across the world.

Its designed for youth in secondary, high school and university education as well as job-seekers and early-career professionals.
With clear impact evaluation, it translates the latest thinking in positive psychology and positive education to create immersive, experiential programs for youth.
The program can be delivered stand-alone or integrated into curriculum.

CAREER THRIVING INDEX® BY THE TALENT ENTERPRISE

The tool can be used by high school and / or university students, graduates, job-seekers, interns and those looking for a career change.
