LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) February 28, 2023
A new digital edutainment platform, tapouts is on a mission to prepare one million youth by 2025 with the tools they need to successfully manage future challenges and thrive in life. Children and teens participate remotely in live 30-minute virtual gamified coaching sessions weekly. A coach guides them through an immersive learning experience, teaching critical life skills they don’t often learn until later in life, if at all. After just four weeks of participation, youth reported feeling statistically significant reductions in negative feelings and an increase in happiness and pride.
Founded upon a science-based framework, tapouts identifies the four key areas of self-growth youth must develop to reach their potential: identity, mindset, social-emotional skills, and lifestyle. It allows the nervous system to recognize and adjust, resulting in kids functioning in “thrive” mode instead of “survive” mode. By using this thriving framework, the program improves outcomes within five key areas that indicate thriving in youth: self-fulfillment, resilience, connection, experience, and health.
“Studies show that one in three kids report persistent feelings of sadness and hopelessness and in 2021 a National Emergency in Children’s Mental Health was declared,” said tapouts Co-Founder & CEO George Moringer. “We seek to impact society for the better by equipping kids with the ability to successfully navigate and leverage adversity. These skills are crucial for both the individual and collective well-being. Our program maximizes youth thriving by using a methodology that combines interdisciplinary components from psychology, neuroscience, and education. The resulting outcomes foster mental well-being, emotional understanding, and a growth mindset for children and teens.”
The actual virtual group session experience is a safe and welcoming environment where each child is free to share thoughts and feelings, grow, and be themselves. Age-appropriate games, open sessions, and skilled coaching are mixed in each week to create a science-backed edutainment curriculum. Program topics address emotional regulation, negative thought reframing, growth mindset development, goal-setting and goal-getting, and habit formation, to name just a few.
Parents can take a free assessment online to determine how tapouts would be helpful for their child. The tapouts program is $25 per week, billed every four weeks. Visit https://tapouts.com/ to learn more.
