Trails Crossing embarks on social media project

Local students encouraged to advise staff how to better market the friendship centre

On Friday, Dec. 14 Trails Crossing Friendship Centre held a youth media blitz that brought together young people from C.E. Barry, Hope Secondary and a home-schooled student to encourage a campaign letting them be the teacher and show us a better way to market the friendship centre using social media.

They discussed the problems with social media networks such as Facebook’s privacy problems, bullying and online stalkers. There were several students using various social media networks from Facebook,Twitter, deviantART, Tumblr and YouTube. At the end of the evening, Trails Crossing had a competition for a Iconia Tablet from Acer and Jesse Tobacco won it with an inventive plan to create a female heroin using hand drawn and/or digital anime art and making her the Trails Crossing girl.

By creating a weekly or monthly comic strip that can be seen on the Centre’s Facebook and website, as well as the Dream catcher newsletter, to attract more interest in the Centre’s programs and outreach.
