Kathryn Draper from Wood County. LEO is an interactive program that explores how the human brain works and why our brain is not prepared for the challenges of today’s world. Our lower brain, designed for our survival, dominants our day to day life. Using neuroplasticity – the ability for the brain to physically rewire itself – LEO teaches how to use different parts of the brain. Youth will learn to use the higher brain instead of the lower brain to achieve lower stress, better memory, more creativity and most importantly,resilience!

LEO teaches tools and strategies to empower youth with practical tools to understand their brains and quickly improve resilience, adaptability, and fearlessness in a rapidly changing, stressful world. Participants of the program report increased resiliency, improved quality of life, reduced anxiety, leadership in problem solving, clarity of thinking and optimism for the future.
