COVID-19 Newsletter, Volume 7


A Message from C4K

Dear C4K Family,

Weekly 1:1 E-Mentoring sessions are filling up the calendar and it is great to see. Even if a member isn’t currently matched for 1:1, we are finding ways to connect them with volunteers to help with school work, play a game, or explore a new app online.

With E-Mentoring gaining steam, we are working on more ways to engage with our members. We will be testing out a few this week so keep an eye out for announcements in the next newsletter.

We miss you!  Stay safe and in touch.

Sincerely,
Kala, Tricia, Jill, and Colin
