2nd Annual DESIGN TO GROW
Cultivating Connections of Well-Being – March 1-2, 2022
As our youth and communities grapple with how to make meaning of the collective challenges we have faced these past years, it is essential that we develop communities of connection and well-being. This isn’t just about the future. Young people need the grounding of developmental relationships today.
Attendees from across the Mountain West and beyond joined us for Design to Grow: Cultivating Communities of Well-Being, the virtual workshop where professionals and volunteers working with youth nurtured themselves and gained pragmatic strategies for serving youth.
Mission: The Wyoming Afterschool Alliance is a statewide network working to create the conditions for young people to reach their full potential. We are a priority fund of the Wyoming Community Foundation.
