COVID-19 Newsletter, Volume 3

A Message from C4K

Dear C4K Family,

We have had another busy week. It was great seeing even more folks in the Virtual Meet-ups. Check out the screenshot below taken during one of the sessions. Jill was showing some members and mentors a site called Bomomo where you can make art with all sorts of random tools that behave in ways you wouldn’t expect.

Working on during a Virtual Meet-up.

There has been a lot of progress on the e-Mentoring program with a mentor training trial run scheduled for this week. If you are a mentor, be sure to reach out to Tricia if you’re interested in e-Mentoring!

We hope our members are having a great Spring Break and we look forward to seeing more of you online.

We miss you!  Stay safe and in touch.

Kala, Tricia, Jill, and Colin
