Use Social Media to Promote Your Youth Program -- New NCFY Course

A diverse group of people communicating via social media

Does it feel like yours is the last social service nonprofit to join social media? Are you having trouble getting your leaders to see the value? Or do you need direction for an existing social media channel? We can help.

We've seen firsthand that regular engagement on Facebook and Twitter can help organizations grow their network of collaborators and expand their visibility. Our new tutorial on launching a social media presence will show you how to get started.

You'll learn how to budget time for social media and maintain a consistent professional voice. And we’ll give examples of agencies that use these platforms successfully.

The tutorial is part of our new online course, Promote Your Youth Program, a series of short, informative videos that will show you how to use blogs, videos, and social media to reach the audiences you care about.

Take five minutes and watch the social media module. And be sure to connect with us on Facebook and Twitter to tell us how you use social media platforms creatively. In the coming weeks, this column will feature some of the best youth- and family-service multimedia we see.
