Young people today live in an uber-connected world.

For nonprofits to remain relevant in their programming, services or advocacy targeting youth, technology is a crucial component in the mix.
The content of this webinar will provide nonprofit staff with stories and ideas about how technology can be incorporated into programming or services targeting youth, and how technology can further help nonprofits achieve organisational goals.
