Virtual Teen Programs/Real Connections

With Covid-19 and stay-at-home orders, many of our programs needed to switch from in-person to virtual spaces. Our focus was on teen audiences and making these transitions for everything from workshops to council meetings to internships. Our panel will share some of the best practices we developed, tools we used, and challenges we overcame. We will share how we sought the input and voice of teens during the process, and how we incorporated their ideas and feedback. Much of this work will continue in the months between proposal and presentation, and we look forward to sharing that real-time learning with you.

Questions that we are asking ourselves include:
How do we maintain relationships with teens we know, and how do we forge meaningful developmental relationships with teens we are meeting virtually for the first time? How do we reach people, especially with inequitable technology access? What and how do we need to change to align with what young people need right now?
