There’s no question that the pandemic has been hard on children, whether or not their schools have reopened. A flood of research in recent months has found alarming spikes in depression and anxiety among children and their parents. Parents reached out to us for help so we designed a program that can improve mental health for our youth. View U program provides opportunities for youth to use their time in positive ways, identify and cope with problems, build self-esteem, peer leadership skills, bullying prevention activities, and mentorship opportunities. This program will serve more than 500 youth annually.
