Training Description

More and more youth are using the internet and social media at younger ages, many times before experts recommend. So, it’s crucial for those that support system involved youth to understand the potential harms youth can be exposed to on the internet and on social media platforms. This training will provide participants with safety strategies and conversation starters to review with youth. Additionally this training will highlight how technology can place foster care and juvenile justice involved youth at high risk for commercial sexual exploitation.

Learning Objectives

· Identify at least 2 potential dangers of youth using the Internet and social media.

· Identify at least 3 safety strategies for using technology.
