Youth Services Meetings, Week of April 27th (Everyone is Welcome!)

There will be another round of meetings for youth services staff next week. These are opportunities to connect with others about these timely topics, exchange ideas, share frustrations, and celebrate successes. These meetings and webinars so far have provided so much rich conversation and many, many great ideas! That said, this is a lot of meetings! Please join whichever interest you and you have time for. Notes from each discussion are captured and shared in Google documents for you to view and contribute to at any time if you miss topics of interest.
