Abstract/Description

This session will look at some creative ways the panelists worked together to continue to provide reflective, educational, and prayerful social justice-based programming for students while adapting to COVID-19 restrictions. Answering the need for anti-racist education, the Awaken Retreat was created, allowing students an opportunity to explore how their faith calls them to be anti-racist. The Center for Social Concern’s long-standing REAL Dayton experience was still able to connect students to the cty of Dayton while keeping everyone safe. Finally, 2020 also called for education on the elections; the Vox Retreat, available to students through downloadable modules, allowed participants to learn how to use their voice this election year, guided by their faith or personal values. The presenters will share the joys and challenges of creating and adapting these programs during this very different year.

Goals for Attendees

Introduce attendees to three examples of adapting/creating programming for students under changing guidelines. Demonstrate how colleagues have worked together to create something new when challenge arrives. Prompt attendees to identify one area of their work that could use a tweak at this time.
