UNL prepares young people for success and leadership through a programmatic model based on four essential pillars: talent, education, career, and service. UNL’s developmentally appropriate curriculum helps young people identify their TALENTS, learn to focus their passions through EDUCATION, gain opportunities to explore a future CAREER, and give back to their communities through SERVICE.

UNL’s curriculum is predicated on the Search Institute’s building blocks, which represent the relationships, opportunities and personal qualities young people need to succeed and thrive. To date, UNL has trained over 42,000 youth from marginalized communities providing skills and tools necessary to succeed in school, career and life. Utilizing a peer-to-peer training model, UNL has increased high school graduation rates, post-secondary pursuits, and developed well-rounded, forward-thinking leaders. In 2016, Usher’s New Look successfully served over 4,000 youth. And, we are extremely proud that 100% of our academy high school seniors continue to graduate on time!

Non Profits Radio! Be Our Guest and “Broadcast Your Cause!”
Mission: Share compelling stories of local community nonprofit organizations.

Inviting nonprofits and companies/individuals supporting nonprofits to join us in the studio for a guest interview on NonProfits Radio! A passion project of Pro Business Channel, the creator of NonProfits Radio “as our way to support and help tell the stories of local nonprofits”!!

Hosted by: Rich Casanova
Rich Casanova began his broadcasting career in California’s central valley at KSKS-FM. While in California he also ran a successful entertainment company whose staff and crew entertained over 100,000 people. After moving to Atlanta and selling his entertainment company, Casanova ventured into publishing as the Publisher and Franchise Owner of Coffee News, headquartered in Bangor, ME.

Later became the Founder and CCO, Chief Connection Officer, of an online platform where local business professionals register to receive a free list of the top 100 networking events in metro Atlanta.

With a name like Casanova and his gregarious personality, Rich was a natural as a music radio DJ. “I got the radio bug early in my career and often thought how great it would be if there was an opportunity to participate in a talk radio format with a pro-business perspective interviewing thought leaders from the local business community.” Thus was born the Pro Business Channel where Rich is the CoFounder and Chief Visionary Officer.
