Strength in Action: Supporting Our Nation's Most Vulnerable Youth is a podcast series by the FYSB APP Program. In the podcast, we talk with people who are implementing programs that prevent teen pregnancy and help teens prepare for adulthood.
In this episode, Ginger Harris, Youth Engagement Lead at the Tennessee Department of Children’s Services’ Office of Independent Living, joins us for a discussion of how she uses social media tools, like Facebook and GroupMe, to get the word out about youth programs and keep adolescents engaged. We also discuss how to motivate youths to participate by meeting them "where they are" and emphasizing their priorities.
