May 22 Update

May 22, 2020 | COVID-19 Youth Updates

This week’s COVID-19 Youth Update is a little different, but that makes it interesting! Yorri, a colleague of Kris’ (who serves New Beginnings as the Youth Action Board Specialist and Prevention & Training Coordinator), recently shared THIS BLOG POST about her experience with self-care during this pandemic, including profound insights about practicing self-care she learned from the Youth and Young Adults she works to support at the National Network for Youth’s (NN4Y’s) National Youth Advisory Council (NYAC), a group similar to the Maine Statewide Youth Action Board (YAB). Self-care has also been on the minds of the YAB, so be on the lookout for acts of #YABtivism in and around your community (and on social media) over the Memorial Day weekend as messages of care and support are shared! Most importantly, don’t forget to make time for your practice!#YABtivism & Self-Care COVID-19 Youth Update
