Do you like working with kids or teens? Would you like to meet professionals who have the same interests as you? Are you looking for a great way to network with some like-minded people?
iYouth is looking for enthusiastic leaders interested in youth services or who just has a passion for leadership and youth. We create a community of students to share ideas and passions to envision a future of the youth services profession. We are committed to working with allies in organizing events –(iYouth Conferences)– that focus on professional development opportunities and networking, as they relate to the UW iSchool and the field of youth services at large. What is the iYouth conference? It is a full day of networking and skill building. We will have librarians from around the area giving speeches, conducting workshops, and getting to know all the attendees. There will also be people from the professional world.
Sound like a blast?
Here are the positions we are looking for:
Organize meetings and build relationships with other organizations. Responsible for advertising iYouth events through the use of appropriate email listservs, social media, and other methods (including blogging)
Preparation and development of annual budget with the guiding input from iYouth members, maintaining the iYouth bank account, responsible for settling iYouth event related expenses incurred including reimbursement for personal expenses.
