Youth Resiliency Virtual Support Services for Orange County
The social and emotional wellness of many youth in Orange County (OC) has been greatly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. OC youth are now tasked with navigating at-home distance learning, being physically separated from loved ones and experiencing social isolation.
To support youth based in OC and respond to these new challenges, Phoenix House California has introduced a new program, Youth Resiliency Virtual Support Services (YRVSS).
Introducing YOU AND App
We are also proud to announce the upcoming launch of a YRVSS project, YOU AND. YOU AND is an interactive mobile application created to restore and preserve social and emotional wellness for Orange County youth during these challenging times.
The design of the YOU AND app was informed by research collected in partnership with UCI and Orange County students. The app features lessons for students in grades K-12. By completing the lessons, students will learn how to maintain and increase resiliency during COVID-19 and times of social stress. To provide students and families with additional support, the app also connects students to local community resources. This app is free to the community and meets all social emotional learning core competencies. Please visit https://youandapp.org/ to sign up for updates and stay tuned for the official release of the YOU AND App!
