Connect and Learn – June 18, hosted by Viviana Hernandez Saint-Louis

  • Rethinking Expectations and Routines: In the news and on social media, we hear a lot of talk of “getting back to normal,” after the initial phase of COVID response. But is this possible? It’s more realistic that we will discover a new “normal.” This new normal will mean new expectations when our programs fully open and helping youth get readjusted to being back in the program environment. In this discussion, we’ll explore how to create new expectations and support youth to get back into the groove of being in a program environment.
