Fund the arts to open hearts
The rise in teen anxiety and depression calls for innovative ways to integrate social and emotional learning throughout our kids' days. The arts offer therapeutic benefits wrapped in engaging experiences.
MFEE is piloting programs that foster connections, nurture self-esteem, and provide an outlet for self-expression. While some of these programs were initially conceived outside Covid-19, their importance has grown even larger as all students struggle with isolation and anxiety. Both in the remote learning space and when students return to the school buildings, supporting their social and emotional needs must be a priority.
Our kids need us now more than ever. Invest in their hearts today.
