JOIN THE XLR8 GROUP CHAT

HOW DOES IT WORK?

We are using a free online communication platform called SLACK that handles the group chat for us! In Slack, there are a number of different chats (called “channels”) that you can join based on your interests or small group!

WHAT IS SLACK?
Slack is a professional communication software used by companies around the world to help manage off-site and remote workers.
WHY SLACK?
We want to connect with all our youth – and this is the easiest way to setup an online all-youth involved group chat. 

Through Slack, we will be able to chat, share memes, pray for one another, hangout, organize online video game sessions, setup netflix watch parties & more!

WE ARE ENCOURAGING ALL OUR YOUTH & YOUTH LEADERS TO SIGN UP AND JOIN OUR GROUP CHAT

We believe this system will help make self-isolation more bearable, and help us connect!
