This session covers how to stay current on teen interests, culture, and trends through a variety of media and modalities. Lots of resources are spent chasing teen attendance at and interest in programs and services – let’s increase our chances of successful outcomes and outputs by starting from a place of teen interest and need. This session will include handouts on resources, trends, and tools to stay up-to-date with teen culture, and will open a dialogue about the incredibly diverse and nuanced interests of contemporary teens.
