Start Time: Pacific - 12 Noon, Mountain - 1 PM, Central - 2 PM, Eastern - 3 PM

Presenter: Patty Wong

  • Do your staff ever roll their eyes whenever young people come into the building?
  • How do we enable our library institutions to move from the mindset of serving youth to that of working with youth?

Take a journey with Yolo County Librarian Patty Wong as she shares her work with staff in three institutions using youth development as a model. Learn how groups have transformed themselves into organizations that consider safety, support and opportunities for youth and also include youth voice in their service development.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:

  • Understand the framework of youth development as a strategic and strengths-based set of actions to provide positive opportunities for youth to develop and enhance their interests, skills and abilities
  • Learn how libraries have incorporated youth development in their operations at high levels and low levels
  • Identify other youth development organizations as potential partners

This webinar will be of interest to library staff working with teens and interesting in partnering with other local agencies.
