19 Jan OUR APP “TONCES!” PRESENTS ITS NEW VERSION 2.0
In this technological era, everything evolves, and our digital solutions are doing so, growing, changing and adapting themselves to meet the need of their audiences. ‘Tonces !, our successful application designed for young people, has already released its 2.0 version for cell phones featuring Android systems. This version combines a new design, modifications in its functioning, and modules loaded with new features so that young people can establish their life project, discover their passions and identify the type of leadership they have.
‘Tonces! combines the application on mobile devices with an online platform and an active social networking community. Through these tools, we seek to strengthen the capabilities of young people. To do so, we work to improve their access to relevant information, their leadership and participation, their ability to make informed decisions, their self-esteem and self-knowledge, and foster their personal growth and the recovery of self-confidence and confidence in their assets and their communities.
Also, ‘Tonces! seeks to facilitate the access of young people to what we call “3E offer”, that is, to opportunities for education, employment, and entrepreneurship”, taking into account the diversity of regional contexts and the possibilities existing in each territory.
The update provides better user experience and it incorporates improvements among which the following stand out:
- Shorter and more concise contents.
- Updated information on employment, education, and entrepreneurship (3E).
- Possibility to “like” or share information with friends.
- Different options to participate in the community.
- Visualization of the type of personality, skills, and leadership that the young user has.
‘Tonces! is part of the project “Active Youth for the Renewal of the Territory,” which was designed in 2016 by Fundación Capital and the Agency for the Renewal of the Territory (ART), with the collaboration of the Citi Foundation and the International Development Research Center (IDRC) of Canada. The main goal of the project is to provide vocational guidance tools, life skills, training and links that allow young people between 16 and 28 years to develop their skills, ultimately leading to facilitate access to education, employment opportunities, and entrepreneurship.
