Youth Social Media Program



#SocialMedia! 
YOUTH SOCIAL MEDIA PROGRAM

KEYNOTE PROGRAM: 90 Minutes
WORKSHOP PROGRAM: 1/2 day
TARGET AUDIENCE: Grades 6-12



PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:

Nearly 50% of teens answered "yes", when asked if they felt "addicted" to their cell phones.  In addition, teens also pointed out that parents and other adult-figures in their lives appeared to be addicted to gadgets too.  This is a trend that is affecting everyone, not just teenagers.  Why? Because the use of technology taps into 3 basic, fundamental aspects that makes us human beings: 1) a healthy desire to be aware of our surroundings, 2) a desire to feel connected in community, and 3) a desire to communicate with others in our world.  

At Morrison Global Brands, we are committed to today's youth. We believe in leveraging any and all available opportunities to grow today's youth, and the biggest opportunity to positively affect the lives of today's teenagers lies in the ability to train students on proper social media usage.  Our "#SocialMediaMotivation Program" will inspire students to use social media with the right intentions and educate students to leverage social media as a skill-set that will "position them for success" in life.
