Transforming Teen Services

Change is happening across the country. Teen Services is taking on a bold new approach that sets up our youth for success in life. As a changemaker in the library world, you can help take Teen Services at your library to the next level with YALSA’s Transforming Teen Services initiative.

When: Wednesday, May 12, 10:00-11:30 am

In this interactive webinar facilitated by Ohio trainers Kristin Wilson (Mansfield/Richland County Public Library), Steve Moser (Dayton Metro Library), and Janet Ingraham Dwyer (State Library of Ohio), you’ll explore key concepts in effective Teen Services, including:

  • The importance of giving teens their voice
  • Teen growth and development
  • Connected Learning
  • Computational Thinking
  • And more.

Learn why equity, advocacy, and fostering relationships with peers and adults are critical to effective library service to teens. Take advantage of this opportunity to build and develop services for and with teens that will help guarantee that the adolescents you support have what they need for future success.

This webinar includes several opportunities for discussion. In order to provide an engaging interpersonal environment and ensure that all attendees can participate fully, use of a microphone and camera are strongly recommended.
