“Generation Z” is the new generation – the generation that your youth group is currently composed of. We would like to supply sources so that you can get to know this generation.
This article from Vision Critical is focused on how to reach Gen Z with advertising but it has some great info in there.
–“Generation Z has an attention span of 8 seconds“
For some great information download “The Everything Guide to Generation Z”. Again it is written for businesses to reach Generation Z, but there is some relevant info included. Such as a section titled “Generation Z’s World View”
Another great source is a website called Sparks & Honey – they are a “culture newsroom” they have culture briefings and culture forecasts. Following them on Facebook and Instagram as well as subscribing to emails would be a great way to stay up to date with the culture that your youth are surrounded by and immersed in.
