YEP Saturday Program on ZOOM
Spring Session 2021

YEP zoomed into its spring session of the Saturday Program on April 17 and held four gatherings through May 8. Each Saturday, we focused on the rock trait of love, along with two of the other eight, such as respect and truth. The rock traits were presented as guides to help YEP participants develop healthy and resilient attitudes about life situations, especially given this past year of the COVID-19 pandemic.
