Create a job shadowing initiative (e.g. ‘take your daughter to work day’) that YALSA could implement through its membership. The goal of the program would be to recruit more teens and young people to the field of young adult librarianship, especially young people from diverse backgrounds.
A written proposal outlining the job shadowing initiative, including implementation and evaluation strategies. The proposal should also provide a rough estimate of any related costs.
Resources and materials that YALSA members could use at their local level in the job shadow initiative. Resources that can be distributed via the Internet are the most desirable. The Team should consider YALSA’s many tools for disseminating information and decide which are the best ones for this project. Some possibilities include: YALSA’s website, wiki, blog, Facebook page, podcasts, e-newsletter, and print journal.
