This fall is not going to be easy for young people. They’re heading back to school with an unprecedented level of uncertainty. They’re physically distancing from their friends, managing disrupted schedules and online learning, all with limited access to many of the extracurricular programs and peer communities that make school worth it.
As parents and educators, we don’t know whether schools will stay open. We don’t know what the long-term consequences of ongoing stress and social isolation will be.
We do know that supporting young people is more important now than ever.
NGM Boys Club is a Discord server for boys in Grade 7-9 to connect, check in with each other, and get the support they need for the challenging school year ahead.
