December 2017 Roundup

 
Listen and Read:

Leah from Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, Desiree from Multnomah County Library in Portland, Oregon, Sarah from the Free Library of Philadelphia, and Jessica from the Dallas Museum of Art recorded a podcast about the resources they created during the 2017 Resource Development Retreat. Each resource has a different area of focus and can be used to support work with teens and/or staff.

Leah Durand - Creating Opportunities for Teen Participation and Leadership in your Makerspace
Jessica Thompson - Teen Leadership Toolbox
Sarah Winchowky - Facilitation Skills for Mentors: A How-to for Running a Training/Tinkering Session
Desiree Wolcott-Cushman - Accommodating for Disabilities

Discuss:

Cathy from San Francisco asked about online harassment prevention training for mentors and youth workers.

K-Fai provided an update about connected learning programs in juvenile detention, highlighting Raemona's and Niq's work at Woodland Hills. Does your organization work in this setting? Join the conversation!

Sara shared a video she's using for staff PD about why teenagers are better than adults and asked if anyone has found an overview of adolescent physical development that includes the experiences of trans and nonbinary youth. Do you know of any resources along those lines?

K-Fai also updated a thread about how to handle leadership staff transitions. If you've gone through this and have advice, or even if you haven't but still have opinions, weigh in!
