In part two of our series highlighting Y-WE’s new Healing Justice Collective, we discuss hope-tending, the power of healing in community, and why you can’t “therapy your way out of oppression.”
Y-WE’s Healing Justice Collective is a new initiative that connects current and past Y-WE participants to values-aligned mental health practitioners and covers the cost of these resources. Learn about the genesis of the collective, what inspired it, and how we can make healing more accessible.
We are proud to announce that we are living out our values by centering joy and deep rest this winter. This is the second year we will be taking a wellness break, and we are grateful for our community who supports us in feeling empowered to do so.
We are excited to launch our newest video highlighting how Y-WE is transforming from within! We have recently moved into a new space in Hillman City, and our new Co-Executive Director team is stepping into their leadership together. Alongside our young people, we are also becoming more of who we are as we enter this new era of Y-WE.
This August we are experiencing a transition in Y-WE’s leadership team. Learn more in this letter from Y-WE’s Board Chair.
Y-WE’s Co-Founder, Rose Waterstone, is stepping down as Co-Executive Director this summer. Learn more in their departing letter.
