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 our 3rd annual, starting November 14! This time, we’re helping youth to “put yoUrself out there” with a 5-week activity series led by our team. The goal is to help youth regain confidence, social skills, a willingness to try new things, and spreading kindness now that we are able to reengage in social activities. You do not have to be a Upopolis user to participate.
Here is how it works:
- 5 activities sent out via e-mail on the Monday of each week beginning November 14th, 2022
- 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 other exciting activities
A little sneak peek into our weekly themes…
Kindness – two activities will focus on spreading kindness! We challenge you to get crafty, and spread kindness for 7 days. Do you think you can do it?
Goal Setting – goals give us something to work towards, keep us motivated, and if we’re lucky, something to celebrate!
Building Social Skills – entering social settings with people you don’t know can be scary. Together we’ll work on ideas and tips to help you cope and work through these experiences.
… and more!
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.
