If your organization works with youth, this session is for you. This session will present a case study of how an organization that serves over 600 youth living in economically disadvantaged neighborhoods was able to successfully implement a social media strategy to better meet program objectives. The results were a higher level of engagement, better communication with youth clients and significant savings in staff time. This session will also provide an overview and understanding of the youth perspective on social media, trends, and mobile usage. Session participants will be given specific strategies to address issues such as: organizational buy-in; staff training; implementation and effective usage of Facebook, Twitter, and SMS broadcasting; integration with organizational goals; and adapting to emerging technologies.
