Youth Teaching Adults is a free introductory digital literacy program for adult learners, led by youth volunteer-tutors. The program encourages youth to develop their leadership skills through teaching and helps adults increase their digital literacy skills.
Youth Teaching Adults works best in a one-on-one workshop setting either in person or virtual, however there are also several resources for individual learners who want to learn on their own. Browse our lesson plans for learning at home.
For organizations that want to run a workshop, we provide several facilitator resources. Workshop materials are written at a literacy level 2 (grade 6-8 reading level) and use Clear Language and Design (CLAD). The program is highly flexible and adult learners choose what they want to learn. All workshop materials are available online and can be adapted according to the needs of individual groups. With over 50 lesson plans to choose from, adults can learn how to use social media, navigate a smartphone or set up email. Browse our resources for hosting a workshop.
