Thanks for your interest in helping support this important workshop series created by and for high school students. 

The program format will consist of a large group presentation and the second half of the training will be small group conversations.  Each breakout group will have two adults.  One adult will be an expert for the topic of the breakout group and also an expert in disinformation and social media.  The other adult will be affiliated with CUAH/YCC.  Their job will be to run the breakout session BUT they will need your help to get the conversation going and keep it running.

Please complete the survey to let us know of your interest in co-facilitating the breakout groups for the Social Media for Social Justice workshops.  We'll follow up with you in case you need more information to make a firm commitment.  It's just 2 1/2 hours a month in the spring for 4 sessions.   This will include a 1-hour prep meeting prior to each session and the 1 1/2 hours for each session.

How can you do that?  There are a couple of strategies we have in mind, and you will receive lots of support.


Share your opinions.  We will have a planning session before each training.  We’ll be looking for your input to make sure the conversation is interesting and engaging for teens.
Be the first student to speak.  Sometimes getting people to speak up often requires just one person to respond to a question or be the first person to ask a question.  The break outs will be organized and we’ll come up with a list of possible responses you can provide and questions to ask so you are well prepared.
Ask a question of another participant.  As you listen to the discussion, it will help to ask other students questions and sometimes they feel more at ease when another student is asking them a question.  We can come up with a list of questions in advance but we can also have questions sent to you in the chat.

Topics for each session:
Session 1: Introduction to the Power and Problems of Social Media
·        How is social media used to help, or harm, the causes we care about?
·        What can students do to make a difference by using social media for social justice?
Session 2: Creating Your Social Media Presence and Profile
·        Who do you want to be: a social media warrior or a casual conversationalist?
·        How can you curate your social media profile to support this intent?
Session 3: Who Can You Trust?
·        How can you find good information to share to advance your causes?
·        What key research and advocacy organizations can you learn from?
Session 4: Finding the Right Words and Rhythm to Get Noticed
·        What and how often should you be sharing on social media?
·        How can you structure your posts to gain the most attention?
