To inspire children to aspire to reach their career potential by starting job skills training from early childhood.
Real-world skills build passion in our future workforce.
Benjamin Vann believes in the potential of every child and wants to foster professional and skills growth from an early age. With his experience in education and similar educational models, Benjamin created EdventureKids, an online/offline learning platform designed to teach job skills through integrated partnerships with businesses.
Through EdventureKidz’s subscription service, kids will engage with real company values, experience brand-specific roles, take tours of company sites, and connect with brand specialists online and offline.
Unlike other e-learning curricula, a key component of EdventureKidz is its unique integration of real-world organizations called EdventurePartners.
The model offers two distinct value propositions: Subscription commerce and experiential marketing.
For kids (6-14), EdventureKidz delivers a monthly kit of exciting Edventures crafted by educators, storytellers & EdventurePartners. The projects introduce specific brands and real industries like agriculture, sports, finance, STEAM, and more.
For Businesses (EdventurePartners), the program provides a high-quality, interactive medium of communication, which helps them achieve an attractive return on their investment through a scalable, long-term, win-win relationship.
Benjamin has worked closely with this business model for 3 years in South Korea and recently in Dallas TX as a trainer for the global edutainment brand, Kidzania.
