We are educators, young adults, and community members committed to empowering, connecting, and building a statewide community for and by youth during the #COVID-19 Pandemic. Through expert and youth-created and focused programs, articles, and resources –#WeCanTogether bridges a gap in community services for young people during #COVID-19.
During this challenging time, it is hard not to focus on what we can’t do, our purpose is to work together to discover what we can do. By creating space for young people to learn more about COVID-19, share their stories, and learn self-care strategies – #WeCanTogether will build a community that shares, creates, learns, and cares together.
"Change will not come if we wait for some other person or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek." Barack Obama
A community where young people are empowered to create, share, learn, and work together during the COVID 19 pandemic.
