TEEN SUBSCIPTION PACK PROJECT
Thanks to our amazing Teen Advisory Group who created a vision of a new way to serve our community during the Covid pandemic and obtained funding by writing grants and pitching their idea, we were able to offer themed monthly subscription packs and internships for teens during the 2021-2022 school year. Click the buttons to read more about that project!
The momentum generated during the project is sustained by TAG through new meetups, content, and podcasts! Want to be part of future projects? Sign up for the library’s Teen Advisory Group! We brainstorm what Ypsi teens need and want, then find ways to make our ideas come to life by planning events and writing grants. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
MEET THE CREATORS

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 Ypsilanti District Library 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.generator–z.org.
