Are you struggling understanding how to support youth in their current educational experience? Are you struggling connecting to new ways of engaging youth? Have you forgotten that you are just as important to the success of the family? Do you want to learn some key tips to relieving stress? Preparing families for Raising Grandchildren from Diverse Generational Lenses: Part 2 will provide, through examples and resources, ways to gain solid footing through the challenges beyond Covid-19 and Current Times. We’ll discuss what the “new normal” for youth and families will look like going forward, learn to understand key questions surrounding mental health needs for families, and how youth can learn to re-engage others. Join us for a thorough walk-through of critical areas that affect both Grandparents/Families and Youth.

*We will highlight key points from Part 1 as a reminder.*


  • Highlight some areas of impact from Covid -19 for families
  • Learn key concepts to understanding the multi-generational experience.
  • Learn strategies for managing stress in challenging times.
  • Assess how communication, technology and engagement has changed.
