Nurturing Youth Creativity with Guest James “JB” Brown



This episode features our conversation with James “JB” Brown, musician, producer, educator, and director of Creative Youth Development for the Homewood-Brushton YMCA in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. With a state-of-the-art recording studio and a S.T.E.A.M. maker space, the Y offers elementary, middle, and high school students opportunities for developing their creativity and gaining skills necessary for college and future careers. During the conversation Brown shares the philosophy that underpins the program as well as some of the amazing experiences provided to young participants, including a trip to the Czech Republic so a hip-hop group, Blow Ya Mynd, could perform on the main stage of the YMCA International Youth Festival.
