CTZN aims to engage with young people aged 13 to 18; creating a sustainable, two-way communication channel and offering a safe social network that connects young people with opportunities that can make a real difference to their communities; rewarding and recognising their positive contributions.
All the content on CTZN will be created by, or specifically for, young people within this age range. The app is available on iPhone and Android and is free to download from the Apple App store or Google Play.
CTZN recognises and rewards positive action; it matches enthusiastic young people with activities and opportunities organised by trusted organisations.
Young people can use the app to build personal reputation, their achievements are permanently recorded and they can receive real physical rewards for taking part in activities. It even acts as an online CV - demonstrating a young person's positive reputation and achievements.
CTZN gives young people a voice on issues that affect their daily lives, helping to address their real and perceived concerns, encouraging them to recognise their strengths, and come together to build tangible community improvements.
