Youth Job Connection Presentation

On Thursday, June 15th, 2017, Kait-Lynn, also presented to the Employment Options Emploi, Youth Job Connection group. For this presentation, she used a different approach, it was determined that more of the participants use mobile devices opposed to computers for their Social Media and other online activity. With this information, the approach for this presentation was to utilize an Apple TV to mirror a Mobile Device and walk through steps of creating a profile, and checking security preferences. Using this technique gave the participants a little more information on using their mobile for changing settings, verifying settings and how to change the audience, especially regarding the new changes for certain Social Media platforms for sharing to target audiences.


On Thursday, June 22nd, 2017, the NEOnet team will be participating in a workshop for professional development and education with L.M.W for a True Colours Workshop. This workshop will be informative to individuals and for the entire team, as it will evaluate our personalities and while knowing these, it can help how we work and communicate together and with others.
