THE BIG LIST OF SOCIAL CONNECTION RESOURCES

 

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.  

 

WE LOVE YOU BROOKLYN!
