Teen Tech Week is a national initiative sponsored by Young Adult Library Services Association (a division of the American Library Association) that's aimed at teens, their parents, educators and other concerned adults. The purpose of Teen Tech Week is to ensure that teens are competent and ethical users of digital media, especially the nonprint resources offered through libraries, such as e-books, e-readers, databases, audiobooks, and social media.
