Ultimate Social Distancing Resources

While our community is social distancing and sheltering in place to stay safe, we want to provide a space and opportunity for our community members to engage and connect with each other!

Here are some resources and tips we hope will give us all a way to come closer while we're apart.

My favorite list of resources can be found on this Google Spreadsheet called Resources for Remote Ultimate Community Participation - here is our list of suggestions to engage in our community:

Compete in a contest posted on AYU's Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter

  • Follow AYU on one of our social media platforms
  • Submit your post each contest for a chance to win a pair of Kikko Socks or a $15 gift card to Breakmark!!
    • Remember to tag AYU in your post.
