YLG Teenage Conference 27th April 2012

A conference for learning professionals and workers interested in innovative approaches to engaging teenagers and young people. 

This is a unique opportunity for those working with teenagers and young people, be they library, education, or community workers with a wide cross-section of practitioners and to develop networks. 

Selection of feedback from the conference:

  • Enjoyed it all - particularly Bali Rai. Sometimes it is difficult to remain enthused with all the pressures on staff in the current climate - it is necessary to meet, talk to and listen to others to be re-invigorated.
  • Just to say how much I enjoyed the course on Friday.  It was thought-provoking, and I've come away with lots of new ideas (I can't wait to work on my storytelling!)  It was great to meet, and have time to talk to, other school and youth librarians.  Thank you!"
