SOCIAL MEDIA USE: THE RISKS AND BENEFITS

Teens spend on average, 7 hours and 22 minutes looking at screens – not counting the time they are doing school work. It’s easy for adults to jump to the conclusion that teens are spending too much time on phones or computers, but it is a trend that is not going away. Join the Indianapolis Urban League for a discussion about the risks and benefits of teen social media use and how you can help encourage healthy teen social media use.

Facilitated by Janet Kamiri, Director of Health and Wellness, Indianapolis Urban League
