Resources to Support Young People in Turbulent and Uncertain Times

This resource list is available as a downloadable PDF.

Young people from all backgrounds experience a range of emotions during turbulent and uncertain times. They are required to navigate deep feelings, life-changing events, and challenging social interactions without trusted resources or information.  We believe that Expanded Learning Opportunities (ELO) play a key role in helping young people in these times.

We strongly encourage ELO programs to build staff competencies to create welcoming, safe, and inclusive environments where young people can share their feelings without fear and with opportunities to build skills. It is important for program managers and directors to appropriately train and prepare staff to guide these conversations. These emotions or situations may be occurring without staff awareness or acknowledgement. The resources below can help focus training or conversations for your staff. We have included general best-practice resources, as well as topic-specific resources.
