Mayor Broome Announces Partnership with Facebook

BATON ROUGE, La. – July 8, 2020 Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome announced a partnership with Facebook’s Youth Councils Program to feature training workshops for the Mayor’s Youth Advisory Council. The partnership is designed to provide the Mayor’s Youth Advisory Council with resources to promote civic engagement and dialogue on social media platforms.

“Our partnership with Facebook provides a wonderful opportunity for our youth to leverage the power of social media to facilitate meaningful dialogue, promote engagement, and empower our community,” said Mayor Broome. “The coronavirus pandemic has people across the world relying on social media more than ever, and our youth have an opportunity to learn and capitalize from this experience.”

Facebook’s program consists of three online workshops in the coming weeks:

Workshop 1: Facebook + IG Tools: Tools youth councils can use to engage their communities in their work.

Workshop 2: Brainstorming + Content Creation: Creative storytelling to drive engagement on the work of local government.

Workshop 3: Measuring Impact & Elevating Youth Voices: How to measure the impact of social media campaigns and ways young people can use social media for meaningful civic engagement.

The partnership between Mayor Broome’s administration and Facebook aims to educate youth on social media tools and civic engagement, encourage content creation, and elevate the youth’s platform on social media.
