SRAE Work Group
Self-Care for Youth
Rachel St. John and her SRAE team at New Alternatives for Children developed and delivered a virtual workshop on self-care strategies for young people. The presentation includes a lesson plan, handouts, mindfulness activities, and web-based resources.
Picture the Possibilities
Alexandra Smith and her SRAE team at Bronx Health Care Systems shared a set of activity ideas: role-playing, vision boards, and building on personal strengths. Their activity for identifying personal strengths involves inspiring quotes from celebrities.
The Office of Adolescent Health (OAH) defined sustainability as "effectively leveraging partnerships and resources to continue programs, services, and/or strategic activities that result in improvements in the health and well-being of adolescents." It's never too early to start planning for sustainability! In fact, it's best to consider sustainability right from the start of a new project. These resources can help.
