COVID-19 Newsletter, Volume 5


A Message from C4K

Dear C4K Family,

With dozens of mentors trained for e-Mentoring and 1:1 sessions being scheduled, we are excited about the opportunities to remain connected and engaged despite the physical distancing. It has been great to hear from members about ways they are staying creative, things they are interested in learning, and how they are keeping up with school online. For example, one C4K member, Desi, has been working on her unique art style with some beautiful digital and sketchbook illustrations.

Check-out the Activities Resource and Announcements below for fun activities and upcoming events.

We miss you!  Stay safe and in touch.

Sincerely,
Kala, Tricia, Jill, and Colin
