Christina: Building Coping Skills Through Reconnecting Youth

“Hi, my name is Christina, and I want to congratulate Youth First on their 25th anniversary. I am grateful to have had Youth First Social Workers and the programs they offer available to me, especially the Reconnecting Youth program. This program brought me and so many other students joy by teaching us coping skills and by bringing students together so we knew we were not alone. I am 21 years old now and living in Indianapolis. I graduated from cosmetology school, and I am now starting my career. Thank you to all the Youth First Social Workers who helped me become the strong person I am today.”
