I’m reaching out to let you know what I’ve been up to, why I think it’s important and to ask for your help.
Life as we know it is changing, whether we want it to or not. The ups and downs of this reality could be debated, but one thing is for sure, we are being asked to reflect, adapt and reimagine a new way of being.
How will we lead, educate and learn through the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond?
This unprecedented time has deepened my desire to work with teenagers – discovering and exploring who they are, understanding how others see them and figuring out who they want to be in this ever-changing world. To that end, I have created the
a safe space for teenagers to explore and discover their hopes, dreams, fears, anxieties, emotions, influences, values and beliefs in a supportive, non-judgmental community of peers.
Without school, sports, clubs or part-time jobs – and the added pressures of social distancing – how can we come together to support our teenagers?
You can’t look at the news these days without seeing articles about:
- the growing loneliness epidemic in young adults
- teens struggling to cope
- seniors not being able to celebrate their graduation
- teenagers feeling isolated because of social distancing
- summer jobs not being an option for many of them
Remember when you were a teen?
It was tough, but imagine being a teen stuck in quarantine? Yikes!
How can we help teens feel more connected and less alone?
How can we hold, in equal measure, the pain and suffering of so many with joy, hope and optimism for the future?
The Center for Human Potential was created to assist parents and educators in supporting teens on their journey of self-awareness, self-care and self-compassion.
Here is where I need your help:
1. Ask a teen (or teens) you know to complete this quick 10-minute survey:
2. Reach out and let me know how what I’m hoping to create can help your teenagers or students. I am always looking for partnerships and collaboration opportunities. My first project is probably going to be a zoom group of teens that are looking for a safe space to connect and commiserate on their lives right now. A sense of belonging is so important. I hope to keep it interactive and non-conventional. Stay tuned.
3. Reply to this e-mail with a quick, “keep me posted” so I can remember to send you updates on my progress and share the informative responses from my survey.
Thanks for your help…website and CHP offerings coming soon!
Yours in curiosity,
Center for Human Potential
