Connecting Brain Science to Practice - Videos
Ramsey County is highlighting innovative work by Workforce Solutions, Goodwill Easter Seals, and other service partners regarding research findings from our Families Achieving Success Today (FAST) program. The centerpiece will be research about brain science and how it connects to the work we are doing with families. Specifically, we are highlighting educational research that can be applied in practice to support families as we find ways to help them combat poverty and move into unsubsidized jobs. Below are videos of some innovative work in our community.
