Webinar: Holding Both the Joy and Pain: Supporting Trauma-Impacted Youth During the Holidays
December 7, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
Free webinar from our partner, My Life My Choice:
On December 7th, join host, Audrey Morrissey, to hear how My Life My Choice approaches service provision during the holidays.
My Life My Choice has worked with commercially sexually exploited youth for nearly two decades. We know that for so many of the young people we serve, the Holiday Season is one of the hardest times of the year. To support our mentees wholly, we recognize and honor the pain, while also supporting them in finding small moments of joy and connection.
Audrey will be joined by just a few of the exceptional leaders at My Life My Choice who make our holiday support programming happen:
Oliva Angood-Hardy, Youth Services Manager coordinates with community partners and local organizations to help provide food, clothing, shelter, and gifts for our mentees all year round.
Carolina Avellaneda, Founding Board Member and long-time champion and advocate. They say it takes a village, and year after year Carolina galvanizes her village to support and care for our mentees and their siblings through a gift collection initiative.
Tonya Morris, Training and Survivor Leadership Manager has worked one-on-one with mentees at My Life My Choice for seven years. She has spent countless hours supporting mentees and their families during times of joy and times of pain.
Ann Wilkinson, Director of Mentoring Services has been an integral part of My Life My Choice for more than 15 years and has seen first-hand how My Life My Choice has expanded its reach and deepened its impact over the years.
