Teen Subscription Packs

Free take-home activities and conversation starters for teens to de-stress, learn a skill, get creative and be the change, all while engaging communally through virtual hangouts, podcasts, and at the library.

Thanks to our amazing Teen Advisory Group who created a vision of a new way to serve our community during the pandemic and obtained funding by writing grants and pitching their idea, we are happy to be able to offer more themed monthly subscription packs and internships for teens during the 2021-2022 school year.

Sign up to get a different themed pack each month, with a book and supplies to express your creativity and learn about topics that are relevant to today’s youth. Pick up is available at the library and through other youth-serving Ypsi organizations, too.

TAG You’re It Podcast

A teen-led discussion-based podcast that aims to engage youth in topics pertinent to our lives. The topics covered are loosely linked to monthly teen subscription packs, curated by the Teen Advisory Group (TAG) at the Ypsilanti District Library.

Launched in 2020, Generator Z is a teen-led initiative to reimagine the future of afterschool. More than 1,000 ‘Generators‘ from across Southeast Michigan and Western New York shared their afterschool experience and insight online. Afterschool providers stepped up with ideas to turn that teen insight into action. Over 90 providers across both regions received $4 million to bring their ideas to life in the next year and [organization name] is one of them!

Generator Z is driven by teens and powered by Lakeshore Connections with support from the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation. Learn more at www.generatorz.org.
