So far this year has been a year like no other. From a landscape of political conflict to social challenges and re-education, from our daily routines and navigating personal goals, to legends passing away, and even worldwide pandemics, this year has shaken us all in some way. Can you just imagine how all of that has affected the young people we care about? Our youth have witnessed our subtle or extreme reactions to this year. They see the news headlines too. The youth absorb what they witness, and ultimately if we seem confused or hurt, they feel it too, but there is one thing we can do to model the right behavior during times like this ...stand united.
If not already, in times like these our mentees must become our extended family. Give your mentee a call, and talk to them. Perhaps play a game online together, spend time telling jokes and riddles, or send them an interesting or informative article via text or email. Let’s be vigilant in building the community we dream of despite our current challenges. Let’s remind our mentees that they are not in this moment alone and that it's okay to feel anxious. This can be a time to rest our minds, talk more, read more, love more, and rebuild a community that is united. Let this bring us closer together.
Thank you for supporting BEST Kids, by supporting the youth at BEST Kids. Thank you for caring, and actually acting on that feeling. Stay safe, and no matter what let’s stay unified.
