MyGenius Inc. is a not-for-profit association formed by a group of educators and parents who have a shared concern about the social and public issues facing our young folk in today’s society. Within Australia, a growing number of young people are identifying low confidence, poor self-worth, anxiety, stress, confusion, frustration, loneliness, not achieving expectations, bullying, depression, self-harm and suicidal tendencies as major turmoils in their lives.
Many leave formal education not knowing who they are, or what they want to do with their lives. They often become disengaged and disillusioned, find learning irrelevant or redundant, and lack confidence in their own abilities to handle pressure or to recognise their value and uniqueness. They have not had the opportunity to develop an entrepreneurial mindset or develop relevant skills for the future.
The programs and services provided by MyGenius help to transform young peoples’ lives and support families to nurture the natural genius in their children.
This association is for tweens, teens, young adults, parents, educators and those interested in the social and public welfare of young people in Australia.
Our purpose at MyGenius is to inspire and empower tweens, teens and young adults to embrace their natural genius, to help them discover their passion and purpose for an inspiring future, and to explore opportunities to make a positive difference for themselves and the world around them.
MyGenius is committed to providing services and programs that will inspire and educate 2,500 young people and their parents by 2030.
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are the world’s best plan to build a better world by 2030. These goals were adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015 as a call to action for all countries. ‘They recognize that ending poverty must go hand-in-hand with strategies that build economic growth and address a range of social needs including education, health, equality and job opportunities, while tackling climate change and working to preserve our ocean and forests.’ (Sustainable Development Goals Knowledge Platform).
We believe that all young people should have the opportunity to contribute to developing relevant actions to address the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, and the MyGenius services and programs are designed with this in mind.
