Reminder: Youth Leader Hangout - Bringing the best to the Network
We would like to start a monthly gathering of youth leaders from around the Network to hangout with some of the best of our Cafe presenters. Two things need to happen to make it work. We need nominations of your most dynamic presenters to lead a Google Hangout with the teens, and we need your youth leaders to participate. Once we get the hang of this model of online engagement of the teens, we can open it up to unlimited teens across the country. Please send your nominations of great presenters from your cafe that would be willing to host a hangout to email@example.com by March 7.
Have a great week!
Mike and Michelle
