This school year is very different than most. Youth across the country have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, wildfires, hurricanes and other crises. For children, these changes and events can potentially bring up a lot of emotions, such as feeling nervous, scared or anxious.
With all of this in mind, the American Red Cross has developed several free resources that adults can use with children to help them build resilience and cope with emergencies.
3RD-5TH GRADE STUDENTS:
Our Building Resilience in Children through Coping Skills webpage offers several additional resources, such as storybooks, animated videos and activity books that complement the resources outlined above. We are also offering virtual youth preparedness presentations. Contact your local Red Cross office to schedule one today.
In addition, emergency preparedness information for all members of your household is available.
