Our Futures - Research
Every month, major scientific journals reveal studies showing how our children, youth, families, businesses, and communities can have better futures.  The studies show how simple actions by groups and individuals can improve health, reduce serious social problems, increase wellbeing, and economic success, and save money.  Scientists refer to these simple proven actions, as evidence based KERNELS.  Our Futures effort is bringing these low-cost, proven KERNELS to families, schools, businesses and organizations in Licking County.

By cited example, simple KERNELS can increase or improve:

Parenting and family dynamics, reading and mathematics ability of all our children, academic success of children and youth, high school graduation rates, the health and wellbeing of kids and adults, the talents and abilities of our children and youth, the character and social competencies of children and youth, public and school safety, workplace productivity or obtaining a job.
