Thank you for your interest in the Internet Safety Program. Optimist International no longer provides information on Internet Safety as the primary focus is on scholarships, Junior Optimists, and Junior Golf. However, you may want to review the materials on the following link to the Internet Keep Safe Coalition for help in conducting a Club Program on internet safety. http://ikeepsafe.org
Statistics show that 99% of all teens have access to the internet and 94% of students admitted to being cyber bullied and did not tell an adult. The importance of protecting the children in your community is a major undertaking and Optimists Clubs can play a vital role.
