Just One’s community activities build connection, first and foremost. They let youth explore their real interests, have the chance to experiment with talents, feel safe in relationships with others, and find independent and creative paths of discovery that aren’t like school.
Along with independence and creativity, Just One activities can open the door to growing skills, confidence, and even job readiness and career paths.
During the Pandemic
Even during the COVID-19 pandemic, Just One found ways to stay connected with youth and families. COVID-19 restrictions closed our building and paused in-person programming and mentorships. We pivoted by delivering Projects-in-a-Bag, monthly front-door deliveries tailored to each youth’s interests (i.e., art, cosmetology, fashion, and science), complete with instructions for engaging in our online community and posting the final project online. We launched online classes (including yoga and meditation, coding, technology, and more). We keep youth and families engaged and checked in with each registered family/youth at least once a month. We use this program during Thanksgiving or as a back up plan for summer programs.
