In May 2020, we introduced the U Got This! Challenge, a weeklong virtual activity series to help youth cope with the challenges associated with COVID-19. We’re excited to announce we’re doing it again, starting October 18th! This time, we’re helping youth “embrace control” with a 4-week activity series led by our team. The goal is to help youth find and gain back a sense of control, a feeling often lost during hard times (like during a worldwide pandemic!)
Here’s what our series has to offer:
- 4 activities sent out via e-mail on the Monday of each week beginning October 18th, 2021
- E-mails will contain everything youth need to participate in the activity virtually: a video lesson, handouts, and any other important information!
- Participants will be invited to work on photo projects, art pieces, coping skills and t-shirt designs
A little sneak peek into our weekly themes…
Emotions – ready to test your photography/videography skills! How do you channel your emotions so that they don’t become unhealthy?
Mantras – it’s time to get creative. What’s your life mantra?
Past, present and future – do you love art? Learn to find control in your life while making a masterpiece!
Physical coping – dive into how our bodies physically respond during times of stress, and what you can do to help!
Youth do not have to be part of our Upopolis community to join, the workshop is FREE, and it is facilitated entirely by certified child life specialists who are trained to support children and youth through life’s challenging events.
Do you want to take part, or know a youth who would benefit? E-mail email@example.com to let the team know, “I want in!”
