#TeenDVAM: Social Media Youth Engagement Strategies

February Webinar

As adult allies, we cannot assume we understand young people’s lives and experiences. If we are serious about working with young people to end dating violence, it is important to recognize the trends among youth culture and make authentic connections with the young people we serve. Developing engaging youth-centered content depends on consistent communication with youth both in-person and digitally. This interactive webinar will offer strategies organizations can use to engage young people with technology, and an opportunity to participate in one of Break the Cycles quintessential activities for adapting conversations based on youth research.

By the end of the webinar, participants will:

  1. Consider strategies organizations can employ to engage young people using technology.

  2. Experience and understand how to use Social Listening for developing engaging youth-centered content.


Free for members / $25 for non-members
