“The Tipping Point” Programme

Acknowledging that education is a key sector for building a modern and cohesive society, the John S. Latsis Public Benefit Foundation has started a new collaboration with The Tipping Point NPO, supporting the implementation of the TTP Programme in 11 secondary schools in the Region of Eastern Macedonia and Thrace during the school year 2020-2021.

The TTP Programme aims to create informed young people who are conscious of their academic choices and aware of their future career paths, as well as to connect them to the labour market. In the framework of this Programme, participants, through a dedicated online platform, have had the opportunity to network and interact with qualified professional mentors-role models from around the globe, learn about new trends and career paths, and be exposed to different kinds of insight. At the same time, the students were able to rediscover their hometowns in an entrepreneurial light, discuss current topics of general interest, such as climate change and new technologies, and develop essential cross-cutting skills such as collaboration and teamwork.

  • In the 2020-2021 school year, 64 live group sessions were held, involving 776 middle and high school students and 23 teachers.
  • 54 mentors talked with the students for 3,840 minutes via videoconference and answered 312 questions.
  • Students from schools in Evros, Kavala, Xanthi and Drama were informed about the disciplines of Medicine & Biology, Psychology, Computer Science, Economics & Management and Law.
