We wanted our company name to reinforce the concepts of future, momentum and the 21st century. We chose the name Rocket21 to communicate the idea that Rocket21 is a launch pad to help kids prepare for their 21st century futures.
Rocket21’s mission is to give youth the power to discover their futures, by exploring their interests and passions through creative collaborations with world-class organizations and leading experts.
Rocket21 partners with companies, organizations, educators, and experts to develop competitions, challenges, projects, and experiences that foster big thinking and encourage youth to dream, create and innovate as they explore paths to make their mark on the world.
First and foremost, we are parents, aunts and uncles with a huge passion for helping kids take flight.
Professionally, we are youth market experts with deep roots in media, technology, education, research and marketing. We’ve spent decades working with middle and high school youth – in classrooms, media studios, research labs, and in-the-field wherever kids go to work and play. We’ve collaborated with youth to develop media and content, design and develop products, and help kids learn. And now, we've joined forces with tweens and teens to help shape their futures.
We believe in the power of kids to change the world. We believe that by bringing together amazing experts, resources and opportunities for kids to engage with leaders and innovators, we can help to inspire them to embrace their futures.
If you have comments, suggestions, or would like to join us in accomplishing our mission, we’d love to hear from you.
