AMERICAN FORK, Utah, June 8, 2023 – YouScience®, the leading technology provider dedicated to closing the growing skills gap between students and employers, today announced that it has been selected as winner of the “Overall Career Prep Solution of the Year” award in the annual EdTech Breakthrough Awards. This is the second consecutive year that YouScience has won an EdTech Breakthrough Award. Last year, the Company won the Overall College prep Solution of the Year.

“We’re thrilled to be acknowledged as one of the recipients of the EdTech Breakthrough awards this year,” said Edson Barton, Founder and CEO, YouScience. “Education leaders need innovative, proven solutions to make education more meaningful and support students on their path to educational and career success. Our unwavering commitment lies in providing students with a comprehensive platform that empowers them to discover their optimal path. We firmly believe in the inherent brilliance of every student and are committed to assisting them in recognizing and utilizing their unique talents.”

“By unveiling their innate aptitudes, we facilitate the alignment of students with educational or career trajectories that resonate with their individual strengths, fostering heightened engagement and enthusiasm towards their learning and professional journeys,” Barton added.

Recent research has revealed that a staggering 75 percent of high school graduates don’t feel confident or prepared enough to make decisions about college or careers once they graduate. That’s why YouScience’s breakthrough edtech platform, YouScience® Brightpath, utilizes proven research and data-driven insights to assist each individual in discovering their natural talents (or aptitudes) and validate their skills and knowledge.

The holistic platform leverages AI to allow students to explore a vast range of careers and post-secondary educational options that best suit their skill set. This allows individuals to become more self-aware of their own personal strengths and guides them through an aptitude-based career discovery. The platform also connects individuals with opportunities to earn industry-recognized skill certifications, facilitates their engagement with employers through work-based learning, and empowers them to more efficiently pursue post-secondary education and employment. Through this unique approach, individuals are matched with real-world educational and career pathways in high-demand occupations. “Through assisting students in discovering their strengths, cultivating their aspirations, and nurturing their unique talents and interests, educational institutions have the potential to enhance student outcomes significantly,” said James Johnson, Managing Director, EdTech Breakthrough. “YouScience presents a groundbreaking solution that paves the way for these improved educational and professional achievements. We extend our congratulations to the entire YouScience team for their well-earned recognition as recipients of the esteemed 2023 EdTech Breakthrough Award. This accolade stands as a testament to their exceptional efforts in revolutionizing the educational technology landscape.” The mission of the EdTech Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of educational technology categories, including Student Engagement, School Administration, Adaptive Learning, STEM Education, e-Learning, Career Preparation and many more.
