With the official end to the 2009 program year in June, we LifeSmarts program staff are using this summer to gear up for an exciting new year, which will officially kick off in September. From social networking, to new program content and coaching materials, to improved navigability on LifeSmarts.org, the 2010 program year is looking to be one of the best years ever.
LifeSmarts is now on Facebook and Twitter, reaching teens where they are!
Our Facebook fan page serves as a forum for LifeSmarts participants to interact and network with each other and the LifeSmarts staff in a safe and easily accessible location and receive program updates and news alerts. We post daily questions on our Twitter page, and direct followers to post their answers to @LifeSmarts_org using hashtag #lsqotd (LifeSmarts Question of the Day).
The Twitter daily questions come directly from LifeSmarts educational content in the areas of consumer rights and responsibilities, personal finance, technology, health and safety, and the environment. See what teens are learning at LifeSmarts.org by following us on Twitter, and challenge yourself to correctly answer the daily question!
Help us grow the LifeSmarts community! We encourage not only students, but all LifeSmarts supporters and enthusiasts, to follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
And watch for future opportunities to win prizes!
