About Mytonomy

Mytonomy is a near-peer social network designed to bring alumni advice to high school students while supporting the overburdened high school counselor. We help young people from age 14–25, make better decisions about big life choices: how to go to college and pay for it, where to apply, what to study, and how to link all of that to an eventual career.

We deliver advice through a video Q&A format, where Advice Givers respond to pre-determined questions about college and career. Advice Seekers can save their favorite videos and use Mytonomy as their personalized research platform. By contributing, Advice Givers can share their wisdom and give back to the next generation.

Mytonomy offers school-based products
for districts, states, and higher ed.
