G.A.I.N. – powered by Lowe’s
Youth Development Initiatives has embarked another phase in their G.A.I.N. journey: their migration to SharePoint with a Charlotte Networks volunteer team.
Youth Development Initiatives (YDI) provides caring adult connections and life guidance to disadvantaged adolescent youth. YDI scholars engage in an individualized development process that combines project-based learning applications with real-world learning experiences to build critical life skills, career planning and post-secondary education preparedness. YDI strives to lead the way in ensuring ALL youth live in stable and caring communities where they receive meaningful educations, develop vital life skills and engage in essential social capital-building opportunities that ultimately result in successful futures.
In this phase of their G.A.I.N. journey they were matched with volunteers from Charlotte Networks to set up their new SharePoint site, implemented the file structure and guide them in data clean up and migration of files to the new site. Jon Shannon serves as an Epic Change Agent, the volunteer facilitator of this project. The G.A.I.N. program is generously sponsored by Lowe’s and EY.
