Mark your calendars now for the first in our new series of free Coffee Break webinars. The date is Friday, March 15 at 2:00 p.m. (Eastern) and the topic will be “Welcome to the New Y4Y!”

The concept behind the Coffee Break webinars is simple: there will be a brief presentation on a specific feature or resource on the Y4Y portal, followed by an extended Q&A session with the presenters. You can ask about anything you like, whether it’s related to the presentation topic or not.

It will be like having office hours with your college professor, or having your own personal Y4Y expert you can drop in on any time to ask anything you like.

So bring your questions, bring your curiosity, and don’t forget to bring your coffee!

You can register for this webinar for free at http://y4y.webex.com.

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!
