2) Teens Imagine, Believe and Achieve Success

Youth are doing Great things and finding creative ways to influence the world and their communities even during a pandemic. This is a unique time in history; a time for you to find what is important to you, a time to become the person you want to be, to use your voice and story to influence the world you want to be part of. Not everyone needs to be seen to be heard.

Ways of Caring for Yourself and Others

This month try cooking for yourself and your family. I have included recipes you can do with younger siblings in the kitchen. When we do things for others it makes us feel better about ourselves. What better way to start the New Year off than with Compassion and Kindness.
