About this Event

HOW TO EFFECTIVELY ENGAGE YOUTH DURING THIS CIRCUIT BREAKER PERIOD!

The current crisis has disrupted our Singapore youth work somewhat. But by using technology, it has also created new opportunities for us to connect with them online.

However, Connection doesn't mean Engagement. Much less Empowerment.

Apart from needing to learn how to operate technology, we also need to understand how the current crisis has impacted the youth landscape & emotional pulse of youth.

Which explains why we are conducting this Master-Webinar!
