Project Learnt is a social enterprise striving for the growth of social mobility of the underprivileged teenagers and the sustainable development of the surplus teachers. We make use of the idle time of a restaurant to run a co-learning space for students who need self-study places or academic support. Also, some of them would be hired as the restaurant staff to earn a living. Meanwhile, the surplus, pre-service teachers and private tutors are invited to provide on-site tuition to the students at the restaurants, so that they can enjoy the food and a comfortable learning environment and thus facilitate the learning and teaching of each other.
Product and Service
We cooperate with different restaurants and transform their idle time into an ideal space for co-learning, so that both the students who need academic support and teachers with teaching experiences can utilize and benefit from it.
We welcome all students who need self-study places or academic support to study at the co-learning space and some students would be hired as part-time staff of the restaurant to earn a living. After understanding the needs of the students, we match the experienced surplus, pre-service teachers or private tutors with them by inviting them to provide on-site tuition to the students at the restaurants.
We are now having trial run in a café and hope to spread this business model to other restaurants.
