YMCA Orange County Internet Safety Workshops

In celebration of Safer Internet Day, YMCA of Orange County will host 10 “Be Internet Awesome” workshops across the county on February 11 to teach parents how to instill healthy and responsible Internet habits in their children.

YMCA Internet Safety Day

The events are in response to mounting requests from parents wanting help with establishing safe and healthy Internet and social media practices as online and technology use among children continue to rise.

The workshops will feature discussion-based, parent-to-parent conversations about how to help children be safe, smart and positive online. Families will learn to teach their children how to communicate responsibly, understand real from fake in the face of phishing and scams, build strong passwords, be positive and kind online and how to discuss questionable content as a family. Parents will receive free bilingual resources, answers to questions about online safety and digital citizenship and tools and information to help facilitate discussions at home. All locations will host an opportunity drawing for a chance to win a free Google Home Mini.
