Can gamification create inclusion on the job market?
My Dream Mow is developing an app for youth to get contacts at workplaces to understand different jobs and how to get them. Using gamification we will motivate teenagers to get out of their comfort zone and connect with role models at work who can motivate them to study.
Since 2011 employees from partner-companies volunteer to inspire and motivate teenagers to find and realize their dreams. We work primarily with students from socio-economically disadvantaged areas and are funded by partner companies like Tieto, Scandic, Fujitsu, MTR, Canon, KPMG, Skanska, Samsung etc.
