Keeping Kids Safe Online
As part of our community education series, we’re sponsoring a great program to educate parents on the basics of keeping our children safe online, especially on social media channels like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, and others.
Technology that was once the stuff of science fiction is now in our children’s hands. This presents both exciting new possibilities, and significant risks.

- 85% of Oneida County students say they use “instant messenger services” (e.g. Facebook, Snapchat)

Become more educated, and more aware of the current technology landscape—and what you can do—through this program.
