Awareness, Resilience & Action
The mission of the YES Project is to raise awareness of climate disasters and health impacts, to make our diverse community disaster resilient and to empower young people to take action.
A series of workshops aimed at strengthening community engagement through education, focus groups, and practice.
Our intention with offering these workshops is based on the notion of neighbors helping neighbors, and providing equitable access to resources for mental health and stress management.
This year, Action Network now manages the Point Arena Community Garden, and is working towards projects as part of a vision for community engagement.
Gardening has been shown to support mental health and reduce stress. When we garden together, we heal together! All ages welcome, join us on Tuesdays 10-11am.
Supporting youth and people of all ages to learn handicrafts and new artistic and crafting skills. Community peer support, story sharing, and a healthy, safe environment for creative expression.
Projects such as beading, knitting, crocheting, painting and more.
