Brentwood Union School District (BUSD), Village Community Resource Center (VCRC) and KAFT Coaching have partnered to bring the Young Bright Minds (YBM) program to families of our Brentwood community. YBM is a Social Emotional Learning Program that works to help both students and parents to develop their Social Emotional (SE) skills. When we develop our SE skills, we learn how to manage our emotions which in turn helps us to understand them, to communicate them and to regulate them. This results in building healthy relationships, more self-awareness and self confidence, and many times in better academic results.         

Very few programs offer this content for both parents and students.  Please take advantage of this opportunity and register now!!!  We provide free childcare so parents can relax and fully engage in their session!!!

Please contact us if you have any questions: Coach Karen @ 925-238-5934 via text or Dhoryan Rizo @ 925-791-1293
