Life in the Online World
Optimist International is proud to announce the availability of a new teen internet safety component. The script was developed through a partnership with Junior Optimist Octagon International. The program is for teens by teens.
The goal is to acknowledge that teens use the internet on a daily basis and to encourage diligence, awareness and safe practices. Topics discussed include posting inappropriate pictures or damaging information on social networking websites, internet predators, identity theft and cyber-bullying.
