Blogs Tweets and Friends: Effective Mentoring in the Age of Social Media from Friends for Youth, Inc.
Today is all about social media and youth are typically more savvy to this way of communication than adults. As society increasingly relies on electronic forms of communication, youth mentoring programs are faced with new opportunities and new challenges. This workshop will address the benefits and pitfalls of using social media, specifically for youth mentoring programs.
