Pause Together is a nonprofit created to address the socioemotional, cultural, and academic deficits faced by all students post pandemic. It's mission is: to promote mental wellness and positive mindsets for youth through connection to nature, self-care, experiential learning, and mentorship. Services are complimentary for 9-19, Veterans, and Native Americans. Upon arrival cell phones are checked in, and guests choose free or structured play. There is much to do and learn with focus on STEAM and mindful use of technology. Digital cameras, binoculars, art supplies, musical instruments, farming, animals, and healing modalities replace screen dependency. Founder Shad East, chose to ''Create the New” for our over-programmed youth with inclusion and access for every young person. Visit pausetogether.org to learn more.
