The Teen Tech Squad (TTS) employs 34 teens across 7 library branches. Supported by library staff mentors, TTS members become equipped to research, design and facilitate STEAM activities for library youth, and in the process develop critical social-emotional and 21st Century skills that elevate their abilities to express themselves creatively, pursue their own path of lifelong learning, and contribute innovative solutions to the challenges they see. Using a logic model as a roadmap for intentional program design and continuous improvement, mentors have mapped their staff practices to the outcomes we want to see for the youth, and by doing so have broken down the program into critical elements towards setting teen employees up for success that can be adapted across different libraries and communities. The session flow will include a presentation, Q & A time, and facilitated discussion.
