#Boyer101 invades Martin Library for the Youth Empowerment Summit

On Thursday, I had a special treat.

Some of my last group learning about journalism, and why it's fun and everyone should do it, obviously.

Some of my last group learning about journalism, and why it’s fun and everyone should do it, obviously.

I had the pleasure of speaking with two groups of  young people at Martin Library for the annual Youth Empowerment Summit.

Sponsored by the Harley-Davidson Foundation, the event connects students from the York Homeschool Association and 12 school districts with local professionals and artisans.

I got to speak about journalism, which is pretty rad.

I thought about bringing the NewsVroom van, but ultimately decided against it. I can’t parallel park my own car, let alone a gigantic creeper van.

Anywho, I brought some of the iPads from the Vroom and encouraged the students to tweet my presentation using the hashtag #Boyer101.

Here’s what happened:

I told them the cold, hard truth about cubicles.

Then, I obviously proved that I’m the most fun person they’ll ever meet.

I swear they were learning … 

I told them about our Tout contest.

This statement is probably irrelevant to whatever the actual lesson was.

Apparently someone creepy was peering in the window?

Let’s be real. I probably actually said this:

Damn straight, kid. The best day ever.
