Ever wish you had your own personal Y4Y expert in your program who you could drop in on and ask a quick question or two whenever you needed a little help or inspiration?

The next best thing could be our new Coffee Break Webinar series, starting in March. Each hour-long webinar will focus on a specific feature or resource on the Y4Y portal that you can use in your program. The presentation section of these webinars will be brief in order to allow for more Q&A and discussion time between the attendees and the presenter. Keep an eye on the Network section and on these E-blasts for more information about upcoming webinars.

So bring your questions, bring your insights, and bring your coffee! Because you never know – after getting a few of these webinars under your belt, your program’s new Y4Y expert … could be you!
