For more than 20 years, Chellie Phillips has developed and implemented community and education programs for South Alabama Electric Cooperative’s eight county services territory.

What you’ll learn:
The presentation will highlight what works to make a successful youth program. Questions you should ask before you begin (staffing, content, desired outcomes, by in from management, utilizing interns). Why it matters that you have them? Once you have the program, how do you continue to interact with those youth? Don’t forget about the parents (some who may be your members, some who might be one day). Make plans to use and engage on the media platforms they are familiar with. Participants will learn how to take those programs and grow an engaged future member, how to use their media to increase response and how you can piggyback off an event and continue the momentum after it is over. This presentation is designed for anyone that serves on a board of directors for an organization or anyone active in an organization that is led by a board. It could be your cooperative or a church or charity you serve.
This presentation is designed for Anyone who wants to engage youth involvement in their cooperative
