“En Casa con Glasswing” – A community of youth, educators and volunteers

Published on 1 September, 2020 by Glasswing

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed how we interact with the world, pushing us to innovate and evolve in order to best serve the communities and youth we work with. Moving our Community Schools program to a virtual space, “En Casa con Glasswing” has helped kids enrolled in our programs and their families to continue learning, and critically continue to interact from home. In addition to moving our academic and recreational programs online, we’re providing socio-emotional support in the form of restorative circles, mindfulness classes, gratitude practices, and Community Cafes for students and their families through the online space and What’s App groups in order to help them cope with the stress and anxiety brought on by the pandemic.
