BTSNE’s first ever youth development software brings together its kids, parents, coaches, mentors, and BTSNE team in real time by putting people first! Currently youth organization have to use multiple systems that don’t focus on the social emotional development of our young people, but more on donor management, finance and data. 97% of BTSNE’s kids and families say that they have built a stronger relationship with themselves, their peers, and community through its system.
