How can I connect with others while at GA? What is the Youth Caucus Social Media presence?
Attending workshops and events listed in the Program Book or in our Programming Highlights is a great way to meet people. Beyond that, there are several ways to connect around shared interests, shared geography, or shared identity. Reminders of events will be posted in the Youth Caucus Room.
Meet-Up Board: The Youth Caucus room will host a meet-up board for youth interested in connecting with others to attend workshops, share meals, trade ideas and more.
Good Deeds Wall: This is a place where you can share good deeds you witness to spread the GA love.
Friendship Table: Setup in the Youth Caucus room will be a table designated for people to sit down if they are hoping to meet new people or need someone to hang out with. There will be craft supplies and some games at this table for use between workshops.
CommUUnity Cards: Youth Caucus Staff will be distributing these interactive cards that will allow for youth to kickstart a fun, intergenerational GA experience. Cards will instruct players to take pictures with new people, find others wearing specific items, sing, dance, laugh, and most of all, pass the enjoyment along to others!
