From Conversation to Action: Promoting the Importance of Service

In today's time, social media has given our children access to instantaneous information and news. Exposure to this information sparks curiosity, emotions, and opinions in young people. This becomes an opportunity for parents to engage in meaningful conversation on how we as individuals can increase our knowledge and harness our energy towards positive impact. This webinar explores tips on how to engage in conversations with youth about the importance of service and, furthermore, encourage them to participate in service activities in their local communities.
