The nonprofit organization More Than Words came to Brandeis on Monday to give a presentation titled “Empowering Youth Through Business and Education: The Story of More Than Words.” With locations in Waltham and Boston, More Than Words is an organization that empowers youth to take charge of their lives by teaching them the skills they need to succeed in the job market.

The ’DEIS Impact event began with an activity in which groups of attendees were asked to come up with a short list of things that youth need to successfully transition into adulthood. After going over responses, Education and Employment Manager at the Waltham location Ryan McCarthy began his presentation. He explained More Than Words’ mission to empower youth who are in the foster care system, court system, homeless or out of school and how they have successfully helped these young people learn life skills and achieve their goals. The event ended with a group discussion and question and answer session.

More Than Words is always happy to accept book, CD, DVD and video game donations.
