The founders of Skratch grew in up in very different cultures. However, one thing they absolutely had in common was the value and importance they placed on first working experiences as they grew up.

“Skratch was created when Ronen’s son, Liam shared his own struggles to find work and expressed that traditional part-time employment no longer works for teens today. He realized that so many changing factors has made it almost impossible for teens to find a job. It was his inspiration that motivated Scott and Ronen to build this platform. Skratch is the engine that will create new opportunities for teens.”

When Dallas-area kids can find mini-jobs without jeopardizing their schoolwork, that’s a win-win

“Given how much high school students have on their plates — from devoting more time to their studies to volunteering to extracurricular activities — a regular part-time job may not be in the cards. But a new Dallas-based mobile app could provide an innovative way for students to earn some money.”

Dallas-based Skratch app helps busy teens find jobs in their neighborhoods

“Miranda Alfaro said she’s had a difficult time finding a part-time job that fits her busy academic schedule. ““There are some days of the week when I happen to be free, and with pure luck there will be gigs available on those days,” Alfaro said. “I will accept them, and it’s a good way to make money.””

The app connects University Park teens with gigs that match their skills sets

“Tackling your to-do list is about to get easier thanks to a mobile app designed by Dallas entrepreneur and father of two teenage daughters, Scott Bennett.”

Skratch is helping teens learn the value of work

“We talked with CEO and Founder Scott Bennett about the platform and why he thinks having teens work is an important part of preparing them for the world.”

“Registration is now open for Empowering Tomorrow’s Professional Women, a free Dallas community event designed to educate, inspire and prepare young girls to build work experience, start earning income and become financially literate.”

Social innovation startup Skratch getting teens working again and teaching financial literacy.

“Teens are able to earn money and build their resumes when their schedules allow. Meanwhile, neighbors are starting to connect once again and checking off their to-do lists with the help of the teen next door.”

Every week I make sure to talk to someone that’s completely unrelated to what I do for a living.

“I bring my ideas to life by allowing them to flow without limitation. I let the “what” come out before the “how.””
