Service Description

This workshop is for educators, parents, counsellors, and anyone involved in youth development or mentorship. It's designed to equip these individuals with the knowledge and skills to support young people dealing with fake news, online hate, and cancel culture. 
Coming out of the last few years of lockdown and forced online engagement, youth are more than ever exposed to online influences beyond our reach as youth workers. These influences affect youth AND their families. 
The workshop aims to provide participants with insights and strategies to help young people critically evaluate online content, navigate online hate and cancel culture, and develop resilience in the digital space. It will empower youth workers to guide youth in distinguishing between reliable information and fake news, fostering positive online interactions, and supporting their families in dealing with misinformation and conspiracy theories. OUTLINE: - Understanding the Landscape: Define and explore the concepts of fake news, online hate, and cancel culture, and their impact on youth. - Solution-Focused Strategies: Present activities and strategies that youth workers can utilize in recreational settings to educate and support youth in coping with these online challenges. - Building Resilience: Offer methods to foster resilience among youth, enabling them to critically navigate online spaces and advocate for positive change. -Engagement and Education: Discuss ways to engage youth in meaningful conversations about online content, encouraging them to think critically and act responsibly. RESOURCES:
 After participating in this workshop, attendees will receive URLs to a designated webpage where they will have access to a comprehensive suite of resources to support the implementation of the strategies discussed. This online repository will include: - Activity guides and informational materials tailored for use in recreational and educational settings with youth. - Tools to facilitate meaningful discussions about fake news, online hate, and cancel culture. - A collection of the research, apps, and resources mentioned during the workshop, allowing for deeper exploration and application of the topics covered. FINALLY In a world inundated with digital challenges, equipping our youth with the skills to discern truth from falsehood is more crucial than ever. Join me for this workshop and arm yourself with the knowledge and tools necessary to guide our youth and children.
