This week I am in lovely Black Mountain, North Carolina to give a training at the YMCA Youth Worker Summit. Teen and youth program staff from 28 states are here at the Y’s mountaintop conference facility (yes, the YMCA has some amazing resources) to learn how to serve young people better. I felt like I was around people honestly committed to making America a better place, which made me very happy.
I presented an interactive session on social media perceptions. Usually I would do this using a slide presentation, but the conference was very active and camp-like (silly dancing and such) so I decided to so something a lot more kinesthetic and participatory than I usually do. I think it went really well and I feel I am becoming ever more Beth-like as a digital activism trainer, which is my ultimate goal 🙂
