As we get closer to our November 27 Forum called ReCONNECT to Community, we wanted to give you a preview of how citizens are participating in helping our communities solve the big challenges. This week’s First in Future guest, Seth Saeugling of the nonprofit Rural Opportunity Institute in Edgecombe County, learned about the impact of trauma on children’s ability to learn in rural North Carolina schools through his experience in Teach for America. He and others, work to see how to apply emerging research on brains in a real world setting, not with a pre-developed program, but instead listening and learning. We learn how he is working with others in Edgecombe County to figure out how to translate the research into results.
