YouthZone Interactive Webinar Series

Next Webinar: Thursday, May 28

Parenting From Six Feet Away:


Join YouthZone for a moderated conversation for parents and caregivers about the realities of how our youth are dealing with the changes they are facing.  Parents and kids now have a new normal of being restricted to their homes and losing physical contact with friends and peers. Kate Eakins, Illuminating Wellness, will share tips on self-care with parents and teens on May 28. The webinar will end with a meditation practice to use as a tool to handle anxiety and create calm in the midst of chaos.  You can do this! There’s no quit in quarantine!

Kate has over 25 years of experience in health and wellness. She is a Certified Massage therapist, Hatha Yoga Teacher, Energetic Bodyworker, Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) practitioner, Certified Health & Wellness Coach, and an Access Bars practitioner. Each of these specialties allow individuals to identify techniques to manage daily stress, create more physical and emotional balance in life, and reduce the negative symptoms associate with trauma and other mental health concerns.

To our YouthZone community

Our Board of Directors and staff are in touch with schools, courts, colleagues and public health concerning news and events surrounding COVID-19 in our communities. Our focus is to continue services for our youth and families who need support. Our commitment to you is that we will work to provide options for care.

We are aware that being responsible to our community also means that we need to limit our group interactions, keeping our youth and our staff healthy. We will be using teleconferencing and phone connections so our staff can continue to work. Our offices will be closed except by appointment. To continue to provide services in a limited and different capacity, we hope you will all stay connected with each other.

Board of Directors Vice President Charla Belinski shares a message of hope to our community.
