Webinar: Using Inclusive Social Media in National Service to Recruit Individuals with Disabilities

The National Service Inclusion Project is pleased to announce a January web conference to be held on Wednesday, January 27th. This web conference will focus on how to make social media inclusive to everyone and how usage of social media can benefit service programs. This will be accomplished by reviewing different kinds of social media, ways to apply social media to recruitment efforts, and ensuring website accessibility for people with disabilities.

Date: Wednesday, January 27th, Time: 1pm – 2pm EST

There has been increasing interest in learning how social media technologies can be applied to service programs. This webinar will build on that interest by discussing what social media is and how to make it inclusive to recruit people with disabilities. Specifically, we will discuss how social media can be used to:
-Connect and recruit to a wider audience of people interested in service
-Broadcast exciting things that are happening in a program to others in service
-Provide information via social media regarding recruitment and upcoming events

Jason Scott
Training Officer/ e-Learning Specialist
