Thanks to a grant from the California Alliance for Health Club members have been able to use art and creative writing to help process their understanding of the Covid experience. They have also learned a lot about the science of vaccines and about careers in the medical field.
Our Youth Development Professionals are leading sessions to educate members on disease transmission, how to protect oneself and ones family, how to access a vaccine and why that is important, and other topics related to the pandemic–like youth and mental health. These classes are taught with course materials that are age-appropriate with sessions geared towards ages under 11 and ages 11+. The Clubs are showcasing the artwork and essays around their facilities to keep the message of health and safety at the forefront of everyone’s minds.
