My name is Cooper Cohen. I am 19 years old and I am currently a Sophomore at the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania
I started Talenthood as a way for Scarsdale families with children (K through 7th grade) to connect to high-school students who have talent in different areas for quality instruction. This is a resource that both my family and I wish was available during my elementary school years. Seen as a win-win situation in many ways, Talenthood allows families to find qualified instructors in their neighborhood, while at the same time providing the instructors an opportunity to teach their passion to the next generation.
As an experienced and committed soccer player, I have been approached on many occasions to help a younger child improve his/her soccer game. I realized there are many families around town looking for similar instruction from older high-school students so I decided to turn it into a business. I found that the potential pool of Scarsdale instructors was enormous since there are many talented high-school students looking for a job (gas money and Buffalo Wild Wings aren't cheap). After a careful review process, we have assembled a team of great, patient and friendly instructors to help your children improve.
While this is a business opportunity for Talenthood, I also wanted to include a philanthropic aspect. We have decided that 25 percent of all gross profits will be spread out amongst several charities that are important to us. We want to take this opportunity to not only teach kids how to excel in their activities, but also teach them about the meaning and importance of giving back. After each lesson, we will allow the child to decide from the list of charities where they want to donate a portion of the lessons payment.
I and the rest of the Talenthood team are very excited to be working with you and your kids.
