Thanks to a great grant from our Green Shield, the Lanark County Planning Council for Children, Youth and Families was able to offer training to 116 people from 21 of our partnering agencies over 26 sessions within 3 months. Of those trained, 80% believe their social media allows or will allow them to reach more parents and clients with their communication, which will result in more youth and families accessing service!
Our Communications/Social Media Working Group developed training modules, and the training was delivered by our Community Coordinator, Jane Torrance, with assistance from our Data Analysis Coordinator, Emily Cassell. Jane and Emily were both trained at Algonquin College and received a Certificate in Social Media as part of the sustainability strategy of a previous grant provided by the Ministry of Children and Youth Services.
The modules can be found on Prezi, or as PDF files as linked here:

Thanks to both our sponsors for this terrific project!
