You’re young, smart, and talented, and you know you are out to take the world by storm.. As soon as you land a job or start a business, that is.
But as all of us who have had to start from square one needed people to mentor them, I’m sure you would want someone to take you under his or her wing, too.
The Talented Young People organisation was founded by Adam Sibley in 2006. The organisation formed www.talentedyoungpeople.com as a free interactive resource tool for young people aged between 13 and 24 years who have dreams to fulfil but need a helping hand on the way. The website is a one stop shop where young people can get advice, ideas, talk to experts, talk to other talented young people and promote themselves. The more someone gets involved with the website the more they get out.

Excerpts from The Talented Young People Blog:
I’m one of these people who believes what happens on your inside is most important. Once that is solved, the outside can be much brighter for you. So for my first post, comes a philosophical and perhaps irregular lesson.
I always used to compare my efforts and achievements to those of others. Comparisons are natural in a society where we host prizes that can be won only by a limited amount of individuals and/or teams, in which films are compared and job offers reviewed. To the extent that it’s become an unconscious habit.
You need to separate yourself from others when deciding upon intentions. Only you know truly what is right for you.
Comparisons happen when you do no find enough within yourself to be content with. You cannot be confident of yourself alone, so try to prove to yourself, and perhaps others, that you are better than them.
This is illogical considering that we are all different in personality, desires and attributes.
The important thing is that you are happy. This can only be achieved if you select aims that suit yourself.
