Connect Chicago Meetup: Live!

in our next meetup, we will be discussing youth and digital and technology programs that serve youth.

Watch the livestream here!

Niq Tognoni, YOUMedia Project Manager, and Jeremy Dunn, Director of Teen Services, will be here to talk aboutYOUMedia Chicago.

YOUMedia is teen learning space located at five Chicago Public Library locations that connects youth with books, computers, and media creation tools and software.

As Chicago Public Library’s first dedicated space for teens, YOUmedia enables youth to be not just consumers of digital media but creators as well. Teens learn how to use a variety of technologies and digital equipment through informal workshops and one-on-one facilitation by Chicago Public Library librarians and grant-funded digital media mentors and specialists.

Niq Tognoni will talk about YOUMedia and how it is a space that encourages individual and collaborative work using technology.

Dan O’Neil will cover what’s up next for #CivicSummer

Civic Innovation Summer is an experimental summer jobs program for teens focused on civics, media, and technology.

And perhaps one more magical guest!
