The Tipping Point (TTP) is an NGO aiming to empower today’s youth to enhance their consciousness, when they are called to make their once-in-a-lifetime decisions, and make learning more experiential, engaging and relevant to real life.
When young, we make our most critical academic and career decisions quite randomly. We run into 2-3 people, usually a family member or an inspirational teacher, who act as our role models.
With the help of technology, students & teachers set the agenda of their meetings with professionals worldwide who interact with the students via live video.
Through a secure and structured digital environment, students on islands, in remote regional villages, marginalized urban areas or large cities, broaden their horizons & choices, receive answers to their questions from professionals worldwide – it could be doctors and farmers from a village nearby, or a NASA engineer from Florida -whom otherwise they could never meet.

Up until now, TTP program is implemented in 289 schools and communities, in cities and villages of Crete and Central Greece, Prespa, Kavala, Agios Efstratios, Kalamata, Larisa etc, with the contribution of 552 educators – ambassadors and participation of 15,685 students and 1,572 mentors.
