Social Media for Community Engagement

Social Media can be part of a rewarding and interactive social experience. It creates limitless opportunities to access information, and share opinions and ideas with a broad group of individuals.

This training reaches beyond activities like creating a Facebook page for your organization; and, focuses on using Social Media tools in specific ways for outreach and recruitment, for reaching a particular audience, or for maintaining and managing relationships to keep them engaged in care. It is assumed that participants have a basic understanding of using common social media tools such as Facebook and Twitter and the accompanying terminology and practices.

By the end of this training participants will be able to:

  • Identify how to use Social Media for outreach, recruitment, and retention
  • Identify the benefits and challenges of using Social Media for community engagement
  • Assess readiness and plan an effective social media strategy
  • Implement appropriate Social Media policies and procedures

This presentation is available as training or technical assistance.

Our trainings are available to directly funded community based organizations free of charge.
