Would you like to engage teens in planning and implementing your library's teen technology services? Not sure how to get started? Watch our recorded webinar to find out more.
CreateIT and IT Nation are two digital media and technology programs for teens in Pima County (AZ), where teens are deeply involved in planning, assessing, and making sure the program works for them. Library staff have solicited feedback from teens in many ways, from working with a system-wide Teen Advisory Board to holding youth focus groups.
Jennifer Nichols shares Pima County Public Library's efforts with teen-led technology. Jennifer is a Senior Librarian who helped cultivate several youth-led projects with the library since 2006, including a community-partner led Teen Advisory Board, and the LSTA grant-funded program CreateIT.
