COVID-19 and the 4Y Program
The 4Y Program has transitioned entirely to distance programming since the onset of social distancing measures, as recommended and enforced by the GNWT's Chief Public Health Officer.
Youth in the program are contacted by message, video call, or phone call regularly. The nature of programming has changed, however, there remains a positive impact from consistent communication between the program navigators and participants.
Navigators have been reading with participants, doing small art projects with them, and continuing programming about healthy relationships, maintaining positive mental health, and more.
