The COVID-19 global health crisis has affected all of us. The social isolation we are all experiencing has an especially great impact on our young adults, who may be experiencing fear, anxiety, or depression more so than normal. This is also true for young adults outside of our program, who are currently in other independent and transitional living programs.
We believe connection is still possible, even during this time of distancing. And we believe connection provides hope, even if it’s temporary. That’s why, in response to COVID-19 and to protect the youth in our community, we are rolling out a flexible and virtual mentoring program that we’re calling Choice-Based Virtual Mentoring.
