quaranTEEN Workshops

**OUR quaranTEEN Workshops will start up again in the fall. We invite you to view the videos from the past workshops below.**

 WHAT ARE quaranTEEN Workshops?
The workshops are an opportunity for social connection while we continue to respect physical distancing. The 75 minute workshops are open to any 7th grade through college-age students from Santa Barbara County. Sign up for all of them or pick the ones that are of interest to you. They are an opportunity to feel connected to other students throughout Santa Barbara, focus on mental wellness and have some fun exploring other interests. We will have a variety of topics and speakers. 

Fill out our short form if you are you interested in being a SPEAKER for our youth?
[Currently, workshops are in English but we are exploring opportunities for translation.]
