Youth Forum: De-Stress Your Mess 4/28

Tuesday, April 28, 2020

United States

First-Ever VIRTUAL Putnam County Youth Forum

April 27 – May 1

Online Teen Focused Workshops Designed for Students in Grades 9-12

The Putnam County Youth Forum is a collaborative, educational conference, for Putnam High School Students, hosted by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Putnam County's 4-H Youth Development Program and the Putnam County Youth Bureau.

For 25 years, The Putnam County Youth Forum has been a day-long, school supported, educational field trip – held at a local community venue (Camp Herrlich in 2019), with approximately 130 Putnam High School students attending annually.

In response to the Covid19 Coronavirus crisis, we have re-created the Youth Forum in a NEW Virtual Format.

A variety of teen-focused online workshops, led by community professionals, will now be offered throughout the week of April 27-May 1; held at different times throughout the day.

Putnam High School Students, with parental permission, can participate in as many Zoom Workshops as they choose, throughout the week, based on the topics that interest them. All of the workshop topics were identified and selected by the student-led planning committee members which represent Brewster, Carmel, Haldane, Mahopac & Putnam Valley High Schools.

PARENTS - PLEASE NOTE: We have taken a variety of steps to ensure the online safety & security of your child. Your child’s photo/video and voice will be blocked and interaction/participation will only be permitted in the chat box. All workshops are led by community professionals and moderated by Cornell Cooperative Extension or Youth Bureau staff.


* When logging into Zoom before each workshop, please use FIRST NAME ONLY.

* A Zoom Meeting Code will be emailed to you the night before or morning of each workshop.

* Please download Zoom on your device before the workshop begins. Parental permission is required for you to register for each workshop.
