Cybersafety teaches children of all ages how to navigate the online world.
Bullying is a serious concern among youth today and with the steady expansion of the cyber world, bullying has moved beyond a face-to-face problem. Oftentimes cyberbullying takes place through text messages and on social media sites, which allows mean-spirited behavior to follow kids outside of school or other social environments. Cyberbullying can be a one-time thing, but often is done over a long period of time and occasionally anonymously.
Together with Sprint, BGCA has developed materials to help Clubs and Youth Centers address the perils that youth commonly encounter online and encourage positive dialogue with adults about internet safety.
