Usher’s new look in a pandemic world

Across the country, students are confronting challenges and uncertainty in nearly every aspect of their lives. Be it the anxiety of virtual instruction or the embodied stress of racial injustice and social unrest, increased resiliency and personal growth are reachable. Still, the path to them must be intentional. As “normal” is being defined for some, CWC and UNL answer this call for support and provide hope through the “Be Well” program. Students will learn the Community Resiliency Model’s skills and tools to improve well-being despite the challenges of everyday life. CRM offers ongoing self-care strategies and a mechanism for peer-to-peer support, which will serve the young people connected to this program, now and in years to come.

Careshia Moore, CEO of Usher’s New Look, shared her thoughts on the program, “Having experienced the training facilitated by CWC, I am confident that this certification program will meet the needs of the social, emotional health, and wellbeing of the students.” Her enthusiasm was shared by Cammie Rice, CEO of Christopher Wolf Crusade, “As we all deal with today’s challenges and stresses it is more important than ever to give young people the tools to cope with their own anxieties and to support others”.
