The GenWell Project is a Human Connection Movement that wants to inspire people of all ages to spend more time face to face and experience the fun and mental and physical health benefits of doing so. With the current Covid-19 crisis, we want to encourage people of all ages to think about reaching out to young people virtually and connecting. Not having the ability to connect with friends and community can be especially challenging for the young and human connection can play a key role in building the resilience that will get us all through this in the best way possible.
The GenWell Project In-Class Overview
The GenWell Project wants to support Educators in their efforts to get students connected face to face. This downloadable outline helps connect the topic to the school curriculum around wellness, provides some research facts and figures and has a few suggestions for follow up activities you can schedule with your class.
We thank you for making us the excuse to get your classroom connected face to face. Together we can make the world a happier and healthier place one face to face conversation at a time.
