LoudounX was launched in spring of 2018. Ever since we launched, our mission has been to empower the youth of today and shape a better future. We are dedicated to connect high school and college students with great opportunities. At LoudounX we have created an online portal to explore youth opportunities where users can browse jobs, internships, scholarships, volunteering opportunities, competitions, and much more. Opportunities like these are posted everyday by organizations and individuals. Once the opportunity listing is published, it is reviewed by our moderators within 24-hours and if approved it is posted onto our directory. To make our service be affordable for everyone, we have created a platform that is free for both user ends.
LoudounX was a finalist at the Loudoun Youth Step Up Competition with 9 other teams. It won the award for the best website and received great feedback from the audience and the judges. Initially our goal was to start within the local community, primarily Loudoun County and the Washington, DC metro area. Today’s youth has tremendous potential and there are limitless possibilities for creativity. There is a slight problem to it, opportunities are getting tougher to find. Even with a generation of explorers and thinkers, we do not have a central place for students to discover something new. Many high schools do not get a chance to experiment with different ideas by exploring opportunities in the real world. As a result, students are unprepared for college and careers. This is a huge setback in the 21st century, a age of transformation and yet we are struggling to encourage our youth to explore something new. Well at LoudounX we are committed to changing the traditional views about the younger generation and helping them find life-changing opportunities.
