YouTube launches ‘Find a way #WithMe’
2020 is a year for the history books — one that’s left us all with an understanding that life, and whatever comes next, can truly feel uncertain. But despite that uncertainty, millions of you have taken to YouTube over the last few months to remind us all that, together, we can find our way through.
We started the #WithMe campaign in the early days of Covid-19, to encourage folks to do things at home, together. Our first video launched in April, ‘Get by together’ came a few weeks after that, followed quickly by ‘#GraduateWithMe.’
In our latest chapter, “Find a way #WithMe,” we take a look at all the uniquely creative ways we are getting through 2020— not just as consumers of video, but as human beings trying to find a way together.
From learning new skills to meet new challenges...

(In January and February 2020, just over 300 videos were uploaded to YouTube with "remote teaching" or "distance learning" in the title. In March 2020, alone, that number was over 23,000.*)
...together we’ve found new ways to laugh...
