During the COVID-19 pandemic, DOC NC wanted to support the community by spreading positivity, while also staying at home to prevent the spread of the virus. We wanted to reconnect people and remind everyone what they are grateful for. To these ends, we started an Instagram campaign. Every day we posted a prompt image and encouraged people to post and comment in response. This encouraged positive thinking throughout DOC NC and the community.
A new fun, and interactive way to learn came to DOC NC in the form of seminar sessions in April 2020. Because most students did not have school, many senior DOC NC members supplemented their learning by giving short sessions to teach younger members.
Starting Monday, April 20th, 2020 DOC NC had daily 30 minute sessions during which an experienced member spoke on a topic or skill they have mastered in order to teach other group members. These sessions took place daily from 4:00pm-4:30pm.
