We will socialize in the first 15 minutes with friends and then jump into some discussions around world skills needed to navigate as an adult in 2021. We will talk about money and shopping, being with friends in the age of a pandemic and more. Or, we will prepare a healthy recipe and talk about ways to improve our health and wellbeing.
