The 2019 Young Adult Services Symposium theme is Show Up and Advocate: Supporting Teens in the Face of Adversity. As advocates for teens, how do we show our support and push for social change in our communities? How does access to library resources, services, and activities help teens overcome adversity in their lives? How do staff create more inclusive and welcoming teen spaces where adolescents are free to express themselves, learn, and grow? What literature do we promote and what programming do we offer to engage teens and encourage them to take leadership roles in their communities?
