2 Youth and Tech Speaking Gigs This Spring

Before I started working for myself, I worked for six years as a program director and teacher for Streetside Stories. Streetside uses written, oral and digital storytelling to teach young people in the most underfunded Bay Area public schools how to write autobiographical stories.

I miss working with young people, so I'm excited to be participating in two conferences for youth, and young adults this spring!

Sex :: Tech Conference - Focus on Youth
Using Technology for Social Change (Keynote Moderator)
Monday, March 23, 2009
San Francisco, CA

Over 400 public health experts, technology innovators, and academic researchers will come together to discuss technology, youth and sexual health. Sex :: Tech is presented by ISIS (Internet Sexuality Information Services).

Global Engagement Summit 2009
Working with the Web (Advanced): Blogging for Social Change
April 8-12, 2009

A select group of 70-80 young social entrepreneurs from over 40 countries will come together for a week-long capacity building summit. Ill be teaching a blogging class and doing some mentoring.

  1. I've heard great things about Streetside Stories. It sounds like you're doing interesting work in the Bay Area--I'm interested to hear more!

  2. Hi Emily,

    It looks like you are doing interesting work as well at the SF Aquarium of the Bay Campaign.
