Need marketing/promoting advice and resources for your summer learning program? make your own via this easy to use site or check out the ready to use resources below.
Putting together a fabulous summer learning program isn’t worth your while, unless your community knows about the important role your program plays in giving teens a safe place to go and helping them build and retain reading and math skills that prevents the summer slide. Be sure to let your library administrator, elected officials and policy makers know the vital role your summer learning program plays in youth development and education. Take photos, send emails, Tweet, and more! YALSA also has resources and efforts to help with the process! Learn more below:
District Days: participate in this effort to let elected officials know about the great work you do and how it changes teens’ lives. Visit YALSA’s wiki for details and easy to implement tips.
