How It Works

    We know that choice can be overwhelming. New technology has brought the world to our fingertips, but whether we’re deciding what to buy online or what to watch on Netflix, it can sometimes be paralyzing to have so many options laid out in front of us, and nowhere is that more apparent than when deciding what to do with one’s teenage years. Do I go to this college or that one? Should I take a gap year before university? What will I do with my summer to help build my resume? 

    At TeenLife, we’ve made it easy for students of all backgrounds to connect with out-of-school enrichment activities that match their passions and abilities. There’s still a lot to choose from at TeenLife — more than 13,000 programs in fact — but our website’s top-tier search capabilities make sure that teens are always connected with opportunities that match their specific interests. We collect the programs and present them — all that’s left for you to do is determine which is the best fit. 

    So how does it work? Well the best way to learn about the new program offerings is to subscribe to our TeenLife emails, which are full of guide announcements, event registrations and much, much more. We’re constantly partnering with the different organizations listed on our site to offer great deals on can’t-miss opportunities, so be sure to sign up today. 

    Additionally, there are two ways for teens and parents to search for programs directly on TeenLife.com. Firstly, users can make keyword searches, just like on Google or any search engine online. To do this, simply navigate to TeenLife’s homepage bar and type in the search bar the types of programs you’re looking for. Whether you’re looking for “STEM for Girls” or “Theater Summer Camp,” dozens if not hundreds of programs matching your search query should appear on-screen. 

    You can also browse through our listings and filter by a number of different parameters, narrowing down the thousands of programs available to a select few that interest you. To do this, one need only navigate to the “Find Opportunities” menu bar, decide what program type they’re seeking (gap year, summer program, private school, etc.) and begin filtering using the tabs on the right. You can filter programs by cost, start date, location, delivery method and more. 

    Students and Parents can also now create a TeenLife account, which will make your experience on our brand new website even better, allowing you to connect with programs on a more personalized level. Lots of new features for members are planned for the coming months, so set up your profile now and get to work launching your teen into life!
