Quaran-Tweens

Quaran-Tweens” is a digital video series of conversations with kids about coronavirus and the current world around them. It was created as a tool to foster conversation with kids and families about their thoughts and feelings and to bring families together. Kids provide a unique perspective in this unprecedented time and these videos provide an opportunity to hear from them.

The videos feature kids from different parts of the country in different family units and backgrounds. They lead the conversation and explain how they feel. The goal is for kids and parents to initiate open communication about the current state of the world.
