Any organization looking to share digital literacy education by bringing free programming to their community can host a workshop. If you’re unsure about how to recruit adult learners or youth volunteer-tutors to participate in your workshop, don’t worry! Let us know and we can help connect you with a partner organization in your community.
You can run as many workshops as you’d like, as often as you’d like. We recommend 90 minutes for each workshop, but you could choose to shorten or extend your workshops based on your learners’ needs. Most organizations choose to run one workshop each week, over 6-8 weeks, but it’s a good idea to start with 3-4 workshops at first.
Ready to host a workshop? Sign up via the form below.
Once you’ve signed up, you’ll get access to the online learning platform where you can find training, lesson plans and resources. You’ll also be connection to your regional programs coordinator that you can reach out to with any questions.
Update on Youth Teaching Adults workshops:
The Federal Government recommends social distancing for everyone, including those in communities without any confirmed cases of COVID-19. If you have a Youth Teaching Adults (YTA) workshop scheduled in the coming weeks, please contact us to reschedule, or to discuss options for delivering the content to your learners remotely. We’re here to help you find a way forward to continue advancing lifelong learning and ensure the safety of your staff and learners.
We understand that having access to, and knowing how to safely use online tools to stay connected and informed (WhatsApp, Gmail, Google News, Fake News) are particularly relevant during this time of physical distancing. We’re working to make important changes to our programs to reach those who are most vulnerable and will share updates to our services as soon as they become available.
In the interim, here are some ways you can access the Youth Teaching Adults program and relevant materials:
- If you’ve already booked YTA workshops, you can access the online training and lesson plans by following the link your regional Programs Coordinator shared with you in your confirmation email.
- Check out the resources page to download sample lesson plans and read case studies about how different kinds of organizations have run workshops to meet the unique needs of their learners.
- Contact your regional Programs Coordinator to discuss your ideas for how best to deliver YTA in your community remotely; we want to hear from you!
Our top priority is to ensure the safety of staff, learners and partners. We weill continue to monitor the situation, and will update the community as necessary.
If you have any questions, please reach out to your regional Programs Coordinator.
