For solutions to accelerate, we need very specific kinds of super smart, talented young people working together. And even though our world today is more connected than it ever has been, our intense focus on over-specialization often times limits our ability to collaborate with experts who see our country's energy problem from very different vantage points. Focus the Nation approaches our clean energy leadership development programming through what we call our Collaboration Quadrants model. This proven approach to working with young people on the issue centers entirely around what role they will play in America’s transition to clean energy prosperity. Knowing what assets you bring to the team is just as important as understanding the complexities of the challenge at hand. In order to empower our student teams in every state, all FTN programming builds collaborative teams of four types of students whose skill sets are critical to accelerating local and national solutions.
