Power To Be’s Virtual Programs

With disruptions to our typical programs due to COVID-19, the Power To Be team has been working to maintain connections with our participants and ensure that our community feels supported during this challenging time. One of the ways we are continuing to engage with our participants is by holding virtual programs. These programs consist of story sharing of favorite trip memories, what we’re doing now to stay connected to nature, nature-based activities and challenges, and just generally a free-flowing dialogue of check-ins on how we’re doing.

Access and Inclusion Enhanced Through Collaboration

Working in synergy can have tremendous power and benefits that extend into many spectrums of connection. When we work with others, we become stronger and are able to represent wider audiences and perspectives. One person or organization cannot create belonging and connection in isolation. To get to the true root of impact, Power To Be partners with others.
