Northeast Ohio Regional Library System - Event Information

Event Name:Connecting with Teens Today and Tomorrow
Competency:Teen, Marketing and Programming

Library staff working with teens are expert at connecting with the age group in face-to-face settings. However, it can be challenging to keep those connections, and create new ones, within a virtual environment. In this webinar participants have the chance to learn about and brainstorm ways to connect with and build relationships with teens; learn what current needs and interests are; and develop activities that support the social, emotional, and civic engagement in today’s virtual environments and tomorrow’s return to face-to-face.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify strategies for connecting with teens in virtual environments
  • Discover tools to use to connect with teens without internet @ home
  • Identify ways to build teen social emotional skills and civic engagement virtually and face-to-face
