In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, MENTOR New York has adjusted our planned in-person training sessions to occur virtually.
MENTOR NY will continue to closely monitor the situation and hold training virtually until a time when in-person training can resume.
WELLNESS PANEL SERIES:
6/9 - Creating Spaces for Wellness for Our Youth
As we begin to slowly lift physical distancing restrictions, re-open businesses and get back to some type of normalcy, young people will still be navigating the psychological and emotional impact that this global pandemic has had on their lives. As the caring adults they turn to, it is important that we exercise self-care and teach young people to do the same. During this panel, Cicy George, Program Manager for HR organizational Development at Northwell Health and Brenda Jimenez CEO of MENTOR New York will present ideas and information on how youth development and mentoring programs can create spaces for wellness and instill self-care practices with the youth they serve.
