Sign up to join the Friends of the Dartmouth Libraries on Thursday, August 26 at 6:30 p.m. to hear Deloris Joseph, Dartmouth’s Youth Advocate, discuss ways to prepare children for the new school year in the midst of a pandemic.  Ms. Joseph will share strategies on how to talk about returning to school this fall, how to identify feelings of anxiety or stress, and ways to address those feelings among our children.

As Dartmouth’s Youth Advocate, Deloris Joseph works to support young people in vulnerable situations, such as abuse victims or those whose families are affected by issues like addiction, homelessness, and poverty.  She has an extensive background in advocacy and social services, with nearly 25 years working with children and families in Georgia and Massachusetts as well as stints with the American Red Cross in Turkey and at a rape crisis center in New Mexico.

She has also worked in schools doing advocacy and intervention work with low-income families, helping children with social-emotional disabilities, and helping adults find educational programs or job training as part of ready-for-work programs.

In an effort to make this important program as accessible as possible for busy parents, the discussion will be a virtual presentation. 

Participation requires pre-registration at  Audience members must sign up with an email address to receive a ZOOM code.  For more information, please e-mail
