Youth TechCamp Participants Ready to Teach Social Media for Social Change | global new media | 27 Apr 2013


During the 2013 Youth TechCamp each student developed an individual strategic action plan (SAP) framework to include specific and measurable goals, intended results, target audiences, potential challenges and resources. During the final Youth Techcamp session students determined what action steps need to be completed to achieve their goals. When determining each step, students identified specific and real organizations, individuals, venues and other resources to serve as the basis for their support system.

“It’s like a puzzle- by the end of GNML it all comes together. You return to your home community with the whole picture. And then you can break it into pieces again and show other people how to make a picture from all these little pieces.”

-Aleksandra Klevakova (Sasha) and Kamilya Isaliyeva
