#NCFYchat on Youth Development Brings Youth Workers, Experts to the 'Twitter Table'

Twitter bird

On November 21, more than 80 youth workers and advocates came together for NCFY's Twitter chat on “Building Social and Emotional Skills to Promote Youth Well-Being.” Participants joined the 45-minute conversation, co-hosted by YMCA of the USA, to share their thoughts on the skills and experiences youth need to pursue college and careers. The Twitter format also allowed experts like Karen Pittman, founder of The Forum for Youth Investment, and national mentoring organization Big Brothers Big Sisters to share resources for engaging youth in their futures and measuring program outcomes.
