The NYISE Students of the Youth Employment Strategies Program had an amazing afternoon with Bradford and Bryan Manning, co-founders of Two Blind Brothers . Their New York City-based online label, Two Blind Brothers, offers supersoft, Braille-enhanced T-shirts and henleys for both men and women. All of the proceeds going to the Foundation Fighting Blindness, which conducts research to help eradicate blindness. The students learned about social entrepreneurship, resiliency, and perseverance. The students were inspired and empowered by these amazing role models. Special thanks to Adetola Oloruntoba Youth Program Manager & Ryan Melendez Assistive Technology Instructor/Marketing Specialist of Helen Keller Services for facilitating the program through the sponsorship of the New York State Commission for the Blind.
