Jennifer Velasquez discusses how library workers can and should involve teens in the program planning process from start to finish, while re-imagining a new type of role for themselves that focuses more on strategy, program consistency, and building metrics into programs.
- Strategies for involving teens in the program planning and implementation process

Adobe Connect runs off a Flash platform. Meeting participants need to set their computer settings to allow plug-ins.
