Online Study Resources

Hello TEEEM friends & family,
The TEEEM family is sending everyone well wishes and strength through these challenging and uncertain times. We have significantly reduced our travels and are diligently checking in with our international partners to support them as they prepare and address the pandemic on a local level. As schools have closed and our communities in the United States are suspending activities, we want to create an environment of connection and resilience. In the newsletter this month, we want to share some resources to help keep you connected with our TEEEM community. We hope you enjoy the academic resources, documentaries relating to our international work, and videos on self-care and connection. 

While it is a difficult time for all of us, it is also a good time to pick up new skills.
We would like to recommend some online resources to help you keep your mind stimulated and productive.
