WHY? HOW? WHAT?
To unlock the true potential of young adults!
Young adults have immense potential. Teenage students in high-school and college are served well if their academic and career decisions are aligned with who they really are and who best they can be. ProTeen is their decision companion to self-discover these decisions and unlock a brighter future!
ProTeen is a gamified experience for teenage students to play at their own pace, in their own space on the web or app platforms and self-discover inspiring professions to make thoughtful academic and career decisions. ProTeen’s gamified web and mobile platform guides high school and college students through the maze of real world career options and helps them achieve their future goals by making intelligent academic choices. As students play ProTeen, PROMISE (ProTeen’s Multiple Intelligences Synthesis Engine) works in the background weaving together a wide array of threads from spools belonging to three essential aspects required for making well-informed decisions namely Awareness – Experiential – Individuality.
Awareness cum freedom of choice experienced by navigating across 600+ professions. Students gain insights into 25+ associated threads such as subjects, academics, skills, potential and many more.
Experiential comprehension by role playing 3000+ varied tasks. Students play games based on mental, physical and emotional skills of varied professions designed using Bloom’s, Krathwohl and Anderson’s revised taxonomy.
Individuality fitment insights for each profession determined using a unique hybrid assessment methodology designed based on psychometric theories using 24 parameters of Aptitude (9 objective parameters), Personality (6 subjective parameters of Dr.Holland’s Personality theory) and Multiple Intelligences (9 MI parameters of Dr. Gardner’s MI theory)
Needs of professions are mapped with individuality assessed on the same 24 parameters.

Instinctively Experimental – You begin by way of jumping to “Careers” from the menu and getting to “Explore” careers by role playing different careers and getting a feel by doing different tasks in those professions and competing with others who will be competing for getting and staying ahead on the different Professions leaderboards
