The shift to learning, working, and living in a digital environment has meant radical shifts in how the youth experience the world around them.
For many of today's children and teens, physically going to school was the only means by which they received adequate exercise through physical education courses and sports. Going school also meant the possibility of receiving help for online bullying, which has drastically increased as kids and teens need to spend more time online than ever before. For students who are immigrants, instruction and being around others their age was an important factor in their success in their new country. For students in personal crises, help may be even further out of their reach than ever before.
How are schools and social services juggling the existing problems, new issues, and current needs of kids and teens in a digital environment? How is this support reaching everyone in need?
Join us for a City Club Youth Forum discussion on the ways in which in-school support and social services are making changes to support the digital new normal for the youth.
The livestream will be available beginning at 12:30 p.m. Have questions? Tweet them at @TheCityClub or send a text to 330.541.5794.
