About the event
COVID provided an opportunity to explore and expand how we engaged with residents and how we offered services as we shifted from in-person to virtual programming. Providing a program virtually came with its own set of challenges. It also allowed us to slow down and engage in ways that offered psychological safety and inner strength to support our physical safety during a national pandemic. We have learned that we can create a culture where people feel safe, engaged, and deeply connected with others without being in the same room. This workshop will highlight the benefits of virtual program offerings, explore promising practices, and provide time to embody what we have learned into an action plan that supports creating ecosystems of belonging where all are seen, heard, and empowered to take action in a virtual or in-person setting.
JVH will offer a safe and supportive environment to:
- Understand how intentional virtual program design can create empowered communities where all are seen, heard, and belong.
- Explore how positive program culture can foster a sense of belonging that contributes to beneficiaries mental, social, and emotional wellness.
- Create an action plan for co-creating high quality relevant resident programming.
Participants in this session will receive a safe and supportive space to heal, unite, and take collective action toward individual and collective healing, liberation and empowerment. These session components are designed to support participants’ comfort and confidence in the digital learning environment.
