On March 26, 2014, Public Works Partners and Opportunities for a Better Tomorrow (OBT) gave a presentation at NYATEP’s Youth Academy on using social media to connect to workforce development program participants. If it sounds familiar, that is because we also presented in November 2013 at the NYATEP fall conference.  It was so well received that NYATEP asked us to come back and deliver the presentation again!

Public Works Partners and OBT gave an updated version of the presentation as a plenary session open to all conference attendees. An enthusiastic audience of young adults, youth workforce practitioners, and program administrators got practical advice on how to set up a social media operation from scratch from Public Works Partners, as well as first-hand perspective on the power of social media to drive program outcomes from OBT.
