Social connectedness is related to health. The more we connect with friends, meet new people, and participate in community life…the healthier we are!
Social connectedness is important for our children, too. They need the chance to connect with others, learn all year round, and contribute to their community.
Social connectedness comes in many forms. We all need the opportunity to bond with those who are like us and to build bridging relationships that allow us to learn about and appreciate our differences.
