THE CONCEPT: SIMPLY DO IT
Increasing diversity and a great number of vocational opportunities can cause an inability to “miss the forest for the trees.” Those adolescents who are most aware of their talents will find it easier to select their profession and the right path. Therefore, their ability to assess their own strengths is paramount. Because opportunities to try out their talents in different fields are missing, many adolescents are not aware of their skills.
The idea behind ROYOUTH is to find out what someone can do well by trying things out and to support adolescents in this process. That is exactly what we are about!
SIPMPLY DO IT!
We promote adolescents who dare to find solutions – alone or together. Thereby, we simultaneously train important social skills such as team spirit, the ability to give and receive criticism, endurance, and pride of one’s own success. In other words: ROYOUTH is an initiative that strengthens self-confidence and gives courage for the future.
We are particularly delighted whenever we can pass on our enthusiasm for ROYOUTH to the adolescents.
Adolescents who are unsure of what their talents are:
This is a chance to try out whether natural sciences and technology might be more than formulas and inexplicable wonders for them that no one understands. They may find out they are interested in economic matters or discover a talent in music or the arts or new social skills. At ROYOUTH, they have an opportunity to find out whether they can develop a passion for a topic and want to dive deeper – through experiments, observations and playful approaches.
Adolescents who know what they are really good at:
Adolescents who have already discovered their talents
may be looking for a deeper level of knowledge at ROYOUTH. We gladly support these adolescents as they pursue their hobbies, program robots or implement their projects at “Jugend forscht.” In individual cases, we can even deploy over 35 years of our research center’s know-how.
Adolescents looking for new experiences:
Adolescents who enjoy crafting and tinkering alone or
in a team will kick in an open door at ROYOUTH. All
interested adolescents are welcome to contact us in
person, by phone or by e-mail. In addition, schools and
associations may contact us so can develop suitable programs together.
