the project

Our Youth Innovations Forum has had over 290 graduates since its inception in 2006.   Using problem identification, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills, each class is challenged to develop product design concepts. This is a nine-week program that teaches students critical and creative thinking skills that they can apply throughout their professional lives. 

the steps

1,  Provide transportation that can pick up the students and take them the class location, and take them back home.

2. Purchase bus passes from GCRTA


why we're doing it

CAAO wants to see the next big thinkers and problems solvers coming out of this region we all call home.  This is no reason why the next Bill Gates, Richard Branson, Mark Zuckerberg, Mark Cuban, or Daymond Johns cannot come out of Northeast Ohio.  Youth can do amazing things if given a safe place and the right team to nurture their creativity.
