Media Impact - YMCA Webinar


Media Impact - YMCA Webinar

How many youth were exposed to a gambling ad during pandemic lockdowns? Can Twitch be used to gamble? Are influencers being used to market gambling products? How do YouTube's new restrictions effect the presence of gambling advertisements on the platform?

The YMCA of Greater Toronto's Youth Gambling Awareness Program's (YGAP) Media Impact presentation will tackle these questions and more, in a free hour long session.

The webinar is designed for educators, community leaders, parents, and anyone else who is curious about the latest gambling trends on social media and in advertising, and their impact on youth. Additionally, all webinar participants will be provided with strategies and techniques they can pass onto youth that will assist them in identifying the objective and impact of media content and advertisements.
