Improving Digital Literacy With Y4Y
Friday, Feb. 10, 11:15 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Are you concerned about your students getting reliable information online? Do they know how to avoid bots, spam, and catfishers? Do they know how to get their message out effectively? Join the U.S. Department of Education’s You for Youth (Y4Y) Technical Assistance Team to learn how to help students find information online while remaining safe. You will be introduced to a series of guiding questions that students can use to evaluate the information they find. We’ll then explore tools that help students create and communicate content online effectively using the best formats for their audience and message. With these skills your students will become good digital citizens, using technology in all areas of their lives as they continue to learn.

Financial Freedom With Y4Y
Saturday, Feb. 11, 2:25 - 3:40 p.m. ET
As out-of-school time practitioners, we know money doesn’t grow on trees! Generate a wealth of knowledge in your stakeholders by helping youth become forward-thinkers and make healthy financial decisions that will benefit them in the future. Invest in your program with the U.S Department of Education’s You for Youth (Y4Y) Technical Assistance Team to help youth become financially literate. We’ll start by reviewing the five basic concepts of financial literacy to be covered in your program. Then, we will develop deep pockets of understanding on how to implement financial literacy in your program. Most importantly, we will design and facilitate financial literacy activities aligned with student needs. Are you ready for this investment?
And join Y4Y in the exhibit hall to learn more about our free professional development resources, available to all out-of-school time professionals, not just 21st Century Community Learning Centers.
