This dynamic virtual workshop will explore the most popular social media platforms and how New York City Partners of Prevention (POP) has used them to create compelling and effective posts that are shared by coalitions and providers to unify their messaging and create a greater impact. Learn how to effectively use these platforms to reach youth and parents with prevention messaging that is culturally responsive, informative, and data driven. Participants will get an opportunity to help create sample posts to use across multiple social media platforms.


Important Note: This training requires active participation. Participants will be expected to work in small groups with their cameras and microphones on.
