Shelter-in-Place Resources + Support

Last modified: 


Welcome to the EDvance Shelter-in-Place Resource page. Our team has curated a list of resources to support our community during this time.

Below you will find dates, times and links for our EDvance weekly cafes along with resources to support you throughout the "Shelter in Place" ordinances.  Please use this as a way to stay updated on the changing events, to check-in with your peers, ask questions with staff, share resources and support one another.  

EDvance will be hosting weekly cohort based check-in calls as well as Self-care for Self-Learning with Littles, Virtual Teacher Lesson Planning, and Mindful Moments.  All of these are optional, but we encourage you to connect virtually and continue community building and support during the times below (please note, links for Zoom can be found below): 

EDvance Community Zoom Meetings

Weekly virtual Cohort Cafes provide an opportunity for current EDvance students to check-In with classmates and share strategies for staying grounded and connected.

The following Zoom meetings provide an opportunity to practice self-care and social support with one another as we balance working and living at home while sheltering in place.
