    Youth Compassion Collaborative (The Charter's new youth Group Initiative) is hosting a safe space to hear and share ways on how we've been coping after a year of our changed lives due to COVID19, with a lens of self-compassion and adaptation as a way of living.

    We are a bunch of youth from around the world (Gen-Z & Millennials) reaching out to everyone and anyone between ages 15-35, who want to listen to others as well as have their voice be heard, when talking about compassion, especially SELF-compassion during this past year.

    You’ll get to meet other people around the world, of the same age group, who care about compassion and know how empowering it can be if we channel it for the good of our own communities.
