(Teens) Have you ever wondered where you will find your next hobby or passion – or just how to end boredom? Whether you’re looking for internships to boost your resume, a competitive sport team to join, a fun arts program to participate in, or just a place to meet other teens, Spotivity has you covered. With opportunities identified via our Pocket Genie, we make it easy for you to spot activities and uncover your next adventure!
(Parents) Do you want a free application that helps you to help your teen fight boredom, improve engagement, and build skills? Would you like this in a package that also supports digital parental engagement and promotes safety? Spotivity is the first of its kind tool to help your teens explore options that could become passions!
Spotivity connects teens to out-of-school-time (OST) activities that promote positive development and creates actionable pathways to college and careers. Our digital platform helps identify programs in 10 key areas (arts, sports, tech/STEM, tutoring, employment, voluntarism, camps, wellness, mentoring, and remotely provided activities). In addition to searching for user-specific programs, thanks to our partnership with Utah State University, spotivity has built a machine-learning algorithm (the Pocket Genie) to link users to opportunities that play to user’s strengths or challenges them – helping teens better leverage opportunities and/or find activities that they never knew existed.
* Pocket Genie
spotivity’s research-informed tool to help teens make decisions that are more informed. The Genie currently provides insights into activities and college major alignment and will evolve and become even more useful over time.

spotivity provides an in-app forum where all spotivity teens can engage in lively chat on topics that interest them.
*In-App Program Videos
Each Premium Program is offered the opportunity to upload links to videos they have taken to support participant engagement. These video links are found directly in-app to each enrolled participant. Covid is no longer an excuse for low engagement with your participants!
Curated Articles from around the world are regularly posted for users to read. Go in and have a look – there may be items that interest you!
The full memorialization of all Check-ins made over the life of the users engagement is provided via the spotivity transcript. No more guess work will be needed with what you did after school! Use this transcript to support college admissions as supporting documentation to your school academic transcripts.
