Youth Services Programming During a Time of Crisis

Project tags:

digital youth & youth services

Project poster

Traditional disaster planning concerns what to do during an emergency. This document contains tools youth services personnel can use to prepare for what to do after. This toolkit is a customizable guide for youth services (serving ages 0 - 18) when their communities experience a time of crisis. Youth are especially vulnerable during this time, and library programs can help them process change and deal with emotions. Even better, most of the tools to deliver this service - like storytimes or tween programming - are already in place! From collection management to teen advisory boards - this toolkit covers it all!
