Strategies for Surviving Social Distancing

Creating Confidence Workshop

Youth aged 13 – 19 from across BC are invited to this month’s Online Creating Confidence Youth Workshop, where we will be talking about strategies for surviving social distancing!

With schools being closed indefinitely, and all of us being told to stay home, the days are feeling long.  What can we do to stay connected with our friends and family?  How do we have fun at home?  What are we really missing?  How can we support each other through this difficult time?

Youth are invited to join the conversation this Friday as we make a plan for surviving this together!

When: Friday March 27, 2020

Time: 7:00-8:30pm.

Where: Join us from your home using Zoom Conferencing,

How this works for youth joining from smartphones or computers: The group will meet in a private online meeting room. When you RSVP to say that you plan to attend online, you will be sent instructions to join the Zoom meeting. You can use Zoom with your computer, or smart phone, and once connected you will be able to communicate with all the other youth participants.

Why: Because being the only youth who is blind or partially sighted in your family, school, and community can feel isolating, and Blind Beginnings is a place where you can connect with others who understand.

To register:
If you would like to participate in this Creating Confidence Workshop, please send an email to:  no later than Thursday March 26.  Please include:

  • Youth’s name, age, email address, or phone number
  • If youth don’t have their own email address, please include parent’s email address so we can send reminders of the meeting and the link to join the meetings online

Looking forward to connecting with you on Friday!
