Unlock the Potential: Join the SHIELD Online Community for Interactive Mentoring and Family Engagement

Welcome to the SHIELD Online Community, a registration-only online mentoring platform that connects youth, parents, and families through any device. It's time to discover a new way of learning, growing, and connecting with others in a post-pandemic world.

In the SHIELD Online Community, youth participants will have the unique opportunity to engage with their mentors and interact with other families through our user-friendly mentoring platform. With mentors posting at least one activity per week, youth can watch interactive videos, download activity sheets, and embark on a journey of self-discovery, peer interaction, and group engagement, all within the online space.

We strongly encourage parents, guardians, and caregivers to actively participate in the SHIELD Online Community alongside their youth. By becoming registered users, families gain access to the wealth of posted activities and the opportunity to engage in meaningful discussions in the online forum/comments section. Together, you can explore the activities, provide guidance and support, and create a collaborative learning environment for your child's development.

Join the SHIELD Online Community today and experience the power of interactive mentoring and family engagement. Through our platform, you can ignite your child's potential, foster connections with like-minded individuals, and navigate the post-pandemic landscape with confidence. Together, we will unlock a world of possibilities for your family's growth and success.
