Are you feeling isolated from your friends and classmates? Unmotivated in virtual school? Worried about the future or feeling anxious about college? It’s time for teens to talk about COVID-19. Join a panel of experts and local Teen Leaders for a Community Conversation that will focus on how to find connection, motivation, and a sense of belonging during these challenging times.
