LILRC Webinar: Preparing Youth for College, Career, and Beyond
October 15 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The landscape of college and careers is rapidly changing, and increasingly moving in a digital direction, and while many young people are proficient in texting, video apps, and social media, they are not proficient in work-related digital skills and communication. This program will provide library staff with lesson plans, and ideas to help young people engage in activities that will prepare them to be successful at the next level.
Library staff will:
1. Learn how to assist young people in preparing for work in a variety of settings.
2. Receive lesson plans designed to develop young people’s hard/ soft work skills.
3. Encourage young people to assess their skills and passions, and explore career options that align with each.
