Lend Us Your Skills!

Hey folks, here's a great way to get involved in YSS!  The Youth Services Section (YSS) of the Wisconsin Library Association is looking for YSS members who are interested in volunteering to present hour-long webinars about youth services topics, especially those related to the Wisconsin Public Library Youth Services Guidelines.  Webinars will be co-sponsored by YSS and one or more of Wisconsin’s library systems.  Volunteers will be part of a youth services bureau of presenters, from which systems may select topics and arrange webinars based on their schedules.  

The YSS Board encourages all members who are interested to consider submitting a proposal.  Everyone has something interesting to contribute, and YSS board members are available to mentor you as you hone your presentation skills!

Interested parties should submit a proposal using this form by 9/5/14.  Proposals should include:
o   Topic/title and a general outline of presentation
o   A list of previous experience with presentations (live or virtual)
o   Application/proposal here:

Team proposals are welcome and encouraged. YSS board members will select a bureau of volunteer presenters to promote to library systems by October 1. All applicants, regardless of acceptance to bureau, will be notified by October 1.
