FaceTiming 8 year olds for a long period of time has been really tough. I’m not able to see them face to face but their attention span isn’t long enough to stay engaged on the phone

1. All of our programs have been cancelled through mid-May and likely longer. Still working on developing summer programs, which is tough since no one is sure when things will be "normal" again. Looking for good ways to engage virtually.2. Best practices - We still have police duties, but we try to work from home when we can. Maintaining social distancing and cleaning work spaces.

Since I match kids with mentors in the school system, my contact with guardians has been minimal. This crisis has helped me to be more involved and grow closer to the entire family.
