Overcoming Obstacles: Successful Media Strategies to Share Impact

Editor’s Note: A special thank you to author @jillgordon for sharing the third of four webinars from the Youth Philanthropy Initiative of Indiana’s 2017 webinar series designed to promote next-gen leadership and giving opportunities. Today’s post focuses on how student voice makes a powerful difference and social impact when telling stories through journaling, blogging, vlogging, and social media. 

And keep your eyes open in July for the next special webinar from Youth Philanthropy Initiative of Indiana.

In 2017, Youth Philanthropy Connect (YPC) and the Youth Philanthropy Initiative of Indiana (YPII) partnered to host a 4-part webinar series designed to support next-gen leadership and giving opportunities. This webinar series featured national experts and youth philanthropists highlighting topics of meeting facilitation, diversifying youth programming, successful media strategies for sharing your story, and top resources on youth philanthropy.

Telling the story of your youth programs and the impact they have on your communities can seem like a daunting task when you already have a lot on your plate. The Overcoming Obstacles:  Successful Media Strategies to Share Impact webinar shares real-world strategies and examples on ways to share the impact of your programs through various media strategies. Explore how the Indianapolis based Y-Press program inspired young people to take an active role in local journalism and share about the community through print and video. Find out how the Jewish Teen Foundation of Greater Boston uses social media, vlogging, and blogging to tell their story. Learn how infographics helped the California program, Youth Funding Youth Ideas, create fun and appealing youth-friendly data reports!

The 2017 YPC/YPII Youth Philanthropy Webinar Series incorporates the Youth Philanthropy Initiative of Indiana’s 4-Pillar Youth Philanthropy Model of serving, giving, leading, and engaging to explain the progression youth take from caring within their families to engaging others in their communities. Participants of youth-serving organizations will receive real-world examples and resources they can integrate into their out-of-school learning time.

For breakfast, I had Coffee with Vanilla Almond Milk, Eggs with Veggies and Cheese, and an Avengers Go-Gurt!
