Connections We Need: Supporting the Resiliency of Youth and Young Adults

April 16, 2021 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

This year has been tough, for all of us. If you are a passionate youth development professional (early learning through 12th grade), please join us for the Wellness Campaign kick-off. You will hear the vision and mission of “A Mindful State”, and hear real stories from youth around what support they need from adults around them.
Following this lunch conversation, there will be a series of summer professional development opportunities led by youth that will help Expanded Learning Opportunity programs and school staff, support them where they are as they navigate the impacts from the pandemic, trauma, and interruption of their social emotional journey.

This is an inclusive, collaborative effort. All are welcome to participate. For questions, please connect with Kim Rinehardt at (360) 349-1525.

The Washington Wellness Project is a unique collaboration between the Washington State Department of Health, civic leaders, nonprofit organizations, healthcare providers, leading experts in mental health, and a growing number of incredible people across our state. Each of us is committed to building a community of support as all of us cope with the mental and behavioral health consequences of the global pandemic.

The Washington Wellness Project is committed to improving the individual and collective well-being of Washingtonians by: 1. Connecting each other through people-powered communications and conversations. 2. Empowering ourselves with knowledge and tools so we can help ourselves and others. We will soon be launching a digital platform that will bring people together to participate in this important work and enthusiastically invite you to join us!
