Just Because

These are positive interactions that we can make with each other “just because”, meaning they are not in response to what someone else does. “Just Because” interactions can be given to all youth regardless of their behavior or effort, in order to show that they are noticed and cared about. Examples include: general greetings, asking questions about their lives, remembering details about their lives, going to their events, asking their opinion, letting them know you are interested in their work, encouraging them to join clubs or sports, or checking in about a challenge they mentioned before.
