A virtual documentary produced on ZOOM, takes pause to give voice to our youth, addressing their thoughts, questions and concerns as to how COVID-19 has or will change their summer, their education and their lives leaving memories of a period of time that will not soon be forgotten. As an offshoot of our virtual series, ‘COVID-19: Conversations from the Frontline,’ this program features youth ages 5-19 who joined us to ask their questions to industry professionals. Our hope is that parents will watch this virtual program with the youth in their lives and have a valuable conversation about community and our ability to remain resilient throughout history against adversities that we were able to overcome.
