Register above to apply for a seat in this two-week course.
Tuesdays, May 17, 24, and 31, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. PST (recordings available)
In this new online course, we’ll showcase innovative library programs at the intersection of social work and public health that will allow you to serve vulnerable populations in your community.
Vulnerable populations include people experiencing homelessness, people who are currently or formerly incarcerated, foster youth, isolated seniors, new immigrants, asylum seekers, refugees, veterans, and more. It also includes those recovering from addiction, people with low literacy, or individuals re-entering the workforce.
In the guest speaker program, we’ll feature program examples that you can emulate, including participatory models for serving vulnerable populations, such as veteran to veteran or peer to peer models that include the sharing of lived experience, with the affected population helping others. We’ll help you identify and reach vulnerable populations in your community and leverage partnerships to provide targeted support to those who need it.
You’ll complete workshop assignments to draft your own program initiative over 3+ weeks in an interactive online classroom environment with personal coaching from an expert in the field. In addition, you’ll have access to our foundational bonus content—rich supporting materials you can explore at your own pace, including a series of webinars from Library Journal and School Library Journal contributors, readings, activities, and videos.
Our transformational online courses have given thousands of librarians the tools and vision for meaningful change. The live sessions run on Tuesday, May 17, 24, and 31, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. PST (recorded for on-demand viewing) with an ongoing facilitator-led workshop over 3 weeks. Don’t miss this opportunity!
