Posted On: July 28, 2014

In June BrainWise conducted a training for the front line staff of Youth Opportunities Unlimited (Y.O.U.), which is a youth development non-profit agency serving the greater Cleveland, Ohio area. Last year, Y.O.U. was awarded a grant through the Edna J. McConnell Foundation to restructure its impact programs. Part of its research and planning led it to the 21st Century skills required for its youth to be successful in life.
