Presentation Description

Have you ever asked yourself "How do we engage young adults in our grief programming?" If so, you are not the only one! Join us as we dig into today's young adult culture to find where their wants and needs are. Figure out key elements to make sure our programs are speaking to the challenges they face and how young adults as a culture attack these challenges. We will also discuss how our programs can help create a space for their grief journeys, allowing them to feel supported, empowered, and engaged.
