Teens doing cool things outside!
Featuring exciting and replicable outdoor learning and activities Maine teens and educators have been enjoying together.
WAVES Virtual Communities are working deliver on the vision “every week every Maine teen safely engages socially with a community of peers,” and are open to all Maine teens. The purpose of a WAVES Virtual Community is to provide an opportunity for teens across Maine to connect safely and socially around a shared affinity.
Welcome to WAVES, an initiative working to serve ALL Maine teens.
In response to the inequitable access to the human and internet connectivity that some students have faced with the onset of COVID-19, and through the use of federal emergency relief funds, WAVES joins the other projects of the administration’s #ConnectKidsNow! Campaign, which has included the provision of hotspots for students to connect to online learning, the expansion of broadband, and the development of MOOSE!, a free, online and project-based learning platform.
WAVES is for all Maine teens. We hope you find meaningful opportunities to engage socially with peers through our offerings. Please do not hesitate to reach out to share ideas for additional offerings that would be meaningful to YOU.
