Idahoans embody resiliency and strength - this is known. We also know we have a part in making this resiliency sustain and build. Idaho’s youth have undergone a tremendous amount of change, pressure and trauma throughout this global pandemic. Healthy programming and adult mentorship effectively address this by helping us connect and understand the extent to which youth have experienced trauma or deprivation during this time. Join this panel discussion with experts from the field to help us brainstorm on where we can collaborate and to learn how we connect, grow and strengthen youth through enrichment activities and creative programming!
