CopeCode Club is a campaign we created for the City of Boston Recovery Services that supports Boston youth (particularly those ages 12-14) in identifying healthy ways to cope with feelings that stressful situations produce.

It’s been used primarily in two ways:

  • As an ongoing resource
  • As part of an activity
