Through a pandemic, civil unrest, and weeks of nationwide internet shutdown, Studio Samuel staff never paused with any student or each other.
Classes for students continued, now given in small groups by phone, which is working well. In addition to teaching, staff members conducted their weekly healthcare check-ins to monitor 300+ program participants for Covid-related symptoms, any instability in their households, and/or other situations that may require their immediate assistance.
During these unprecedented times, communication and connection with each other are essential for our mental, physical, and emotional strength.

Thank you to everyone who donated to our Covid-relief fund!
There's still time to give if you have the room.
