Tapping into young people’s passions is key to engaging them in effective programming. This training will overview how to help students assess their community’s needs, identify an issue or topic they feel passionate about addressing, and help them create a strategic plan to effect real change. As media is a key component of environmental strategies, the program will also preview online programs/ tools that can easily enhance social media design.

Key Takeaways:
Library staff will:

  • Learn the basic concepts of the Strategic Prevention Framework, and 7 strategies to effect community level change.
  • Learn how to utilize these concepts to engage youth in tangible projects that align with their interests and social perspectives.
  • Learn tools and programs that will assist youth in creating effective social media campaigns.
