Digital Safety Training - Length: 1 hour

We are excited to announce our NEW Digital Safety curriculum for children,
youth, and adults. Every time a child uses a smartphone, tablet, computer,
or even logs on to a game, the door is open to a virtual world populated by
cyberbullies, hackers, and even predators. The question is, what can you
do to keep your children and the children in your community safe? It all
starts with involvement and education.
 
This new program offers age-appropriate (K-12 and adult) presentations
that empower participants to take the lead in internet safety topics
including:

  • Predators

  • Sexting

  • Cyberbullying

  • Plagiarism

  • Privacy

  • Computer security

  • Identity theft

  • Gaming

  • Social networking

  • Sex trafficking

 
​There is no substitute for safety. Contact us today to schedule your free
private training!
