As part of CADCA Webinar Wednesdays, our Youth Leadership Initiative is proud to present a series of webinars on how to work with youth and keep them engaged and motivated during COVID-19. These webinars are hosted and led by CADCA adult and youth trainers.

April 22, 2020

Virtual Youth Engagement
May 6, 2020
Presented by: CADCA Youth Trainers Andrea Marquez, Nigel Wrangham and LaDarrick Smith
During these challenging times, coalitions play a key role in ensuring families and communities implement strategies that build resiliency and strengthen attachment and connectedness among youth. Resilience is the ability to thrive, adapt and cope despite tough and stressful times. The presence of caring adults and stable environments are necessary components for a child’s healthy development and for building resilience and protection. Specifically, safe, stable and nurturing relationships between children and their parents or caregivers can act as a buffer against the stresses experienced during this global pandemic. This webinar provides practical information, hands-on tools and resources that coalitions can share with coalition partners and families in the community.
