A Glimpse at Some of Our Programs
Social Media 101: How to be Empowered
Teens are taught how to use their social media power to be empowered. Listed below are just a few of the most important rules to follow to stay safe while using social media.

Teens are also taught how to use social media for positive change. Social media, as the new resume, is also discussed at length with older teens.
Social Media 101 for Parents
Parents are taught about trending apps, what dangers to look for (cyberbullying, suicide indications, predator behavior), communicating with their teen/s, and recognizing positive and negative social media behavior. Parents are also provided with numerous parent helper tools to apply when they return home.
Educators are taught about trending apps, recognizing positive and negative behaviors in the classroom, teacher modeling, and social media boundaries with their students. They are also provided with numerous teacher helper tools to apply in the classroom.
Seniors experience a high rate of depression due to isolation brought upon by decreased mobility. This disconnection that can sometimes occur among families due to the aging process can be resolved by using social media. This program teaches seniors how to stay safe online and how to connect with loved ones through social media.
What Moms Are Saying
“I attended one of Kristi's events in Birmingham this summer and found it very eye-opening! As a parent, I felt I did adequate follow up on my boys and what screen time they were engaging in daily. All the tips, tools, and new information Kristi provided helped me to realize there was more I could do to keep them safe and limit screen time. I am now easily able to put these into practice. Given that we found it so beneficial we are encouraging local schools to allow her to come visit and speak with the students!”- Carie Gancy, mom of two boys age 10 and 12
