Teen Outreach for May Term
Jill Maza

Sydney Abraham is spending her May Term interning with Here.Now. Sydney writes, "Here.Now is a teen-driven Jewish mental health initiative committed to de-stigmatizing the conversation around mental health. Here.Now organizes creative activities, partnerships, and events with teens to explore building resiliency and getting support. We also partner with teens in telling their stories to empower them help other teens know that they are not alone." 

A large part of her internship so far has been managing the organization's social media accounts and generating a lot of new content. "In the first week since [she] launched an Instagram page, it's gained over 70 followers!" She's currently in the process of "trying to do some more teen outreach for social media."
