As part of our Second Story Learning Series, we’re inviting you to learn more about the different kinds of exploitation and abuse online. With COVID-19 leaving young people feeling disconnected and isolated from their peers, many are using more screen time to cope with the stress and loneliness.
This means they can be exposed to cyberbullying, hate speech, virtual sex abuse, or criminal radicalization. Building youth support systems and getting involved has never been more important.
Join us for 45 minutes on April 6 at 2:30PM EST, to learn how to keep youth safe from online harassment and abuse.
Today’s youth are increasingly dependent on technology for everything from learning to socialization, especially as a result of lifestyle changes caused by COVID-19. In this presentation, we will learn about different kinds of online hate and harassment (such as cyberbullying, virtual sex abuse, and criminal radicalization), their impact on youth and families, as well as what you can do to help as a member of the community.
