Growing Healthy Teens: Programming and Partnerships

Growing up can be tough and libraries have a strong role to play in helping teens on their path towards adulthood. We can be strong teen advocates by providing them with tools and experiences that will help them become successful and happy adults.

Participants in this workshop will be able to:

  • Use the Developmental Assets framework defined by the Search Institute to improve library programming for teens;
  • Develop a personal script to advocate for teen empowerment programs;
  • Identify potential community organizations to forge inter-agency partnerships;
  • Pursue cost-effective solutions to fund these vital programs.
