About Us

ActivaTeen is a blended afterschool program for teenagers which is one of the few to integrate new technology understanding with emotional well being.

By using game systems at the core of the curriculum, teenagers will work on projects.

  • Plug practical artificial intelligence applications, understand how to use data, become aware of digital and design tools and utilize social media effectively.
  • Learn essential soft skills that will increase their socio emotional literacy.

All ActivaTeen programs have built in mindfulness modules that are designed to reduce anxiety, stress and isolation.


Our Vision

Unleash the potential of our youth by equipping them with the essential tech and soft skills to succeed in the workplace of the future.

Our Mission

Create an innovation zone for youth where they can collaborate, communicate, learn, build and experiment using core technologies including artificial intelligence, data science,  digital media and game design.
