Local Teens Invited to Participate in QuaranTeen Summit

A virtual discussion about issues important to teens during COVID-19

 

KIRKLAND, Wash. – Local teens are invited to a virtual zoom summit on Wednesday, May 13 from 3:30 to 5 p.m. to talk about mental health, physical health, school, relationships, during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This event is hosted by the Kirkland Youth Council (KYC) and the City of Kirkland to offer teens an outlet to discuss the challenges of being in quarantine.

“In a time of great uncertainty, the 21st Century QuaranTeen Summit will answer all of the questions teens have about mental health, wellness, social health, and academics by a panel of experts,” said Max Reisman, a Senior at Tesla STEM High School and the co-chair of KYC. “We also hope to foster a discussion around living and working at home: from sharing ideas on how to connect with friends or create your personal space in your house, to exercise routines and ideas on how to maintain physical health. Teens who attend the Summit will learn how to prosper academically and socially in our uncertain environment and become more resilient in the future.”

Participants will not be on video, but they will have the opportunity to submit questions throughout the event. Panelists that will be featured at the event will include:

Heidi Biehl - Lake Washington Physical Therapy & Juanita High Track Coach
Michelle Brode - Youth Eastside Services
Jon Holmen - Deputy Superintendent & Incoming Superintendent
Christina Hunsberger - Counselor, Juanita High
Chase Stevens - Counselor, Inglemoor High
