NOTE: This post is from early on in the COVID-19 pandemic. Virtual programming may not still be running, or may have moved back to in-person. We still recommend checking out the awesome folks mentioned in this post and learning about their current offerings!

It might feel tough to keep connected when you’re at home. You might not know what to do with yourself, or feel lost. Maybe we can turn those feelings into something better, a day of reflection, home activities, or a call to (virtual) action! We’re currently compiling a list of resources for these times of social isolation connection. We’re talking virtual sing-a-longs, crafts, health resources, breathing videos, yoga classes, as well as links to lists compiled by others. 

Below are five of our favorite online activities. For more info, find our MASTER LIST here, and don’t forget to email if you have suggestions about helpful videos, upcoming virtual events, volunteer opportunities, etc.
