Please note: Eastern Time Zone

How might we leverage technology and digital tools to better support and enhance youth work? How can the youth sector build its capacity to utilize technology in ways that reflect the context(s) and needs of the sector? 

In October 2016, YouthREX hosted a Design Day that resulted in eight prototypes, two for each of the four challenges we were tackling. When they sat down and reviewed all the prototypes, half of them were rooted in technology - a proposal for an app or platform to enhance connections and information sharing. The pitches reflected the desire, and perhaps a need, for the youth sector to integrate technology more effectively into our work.

Join YouthREX for this webinar as they explore this topic with Michael Furdyk, Co-Founder and Director of Technology at TakingITGlobal, Kathryn McLeod, Marketing and Innovation Lead at mindyourmind, and Jessica Valleu, a Virtual Youth Outreach Worker at East Metro Youth Services in Toronto, who will share how they leverage technology in their work with youth.
