Over the past three years, Enough Is Enough has been developing, producing and piloting the Internet Safety 101SM program, a multi-media teaching series that educates, equips and empowers parents, educators and other caring adults to protect children from online dangers. The Virginia pilot reached over 5,000 adults with critical Internet safety resources, and 95 percent of participants surveyed felt motivated to implement measures to protect children from online dangers.
As parents are involved, children are protected from real threats like pornography, sexual predators and cyberbullies. Over 93 percent of kids are online, and children are spending more time using technology than ever before. Parents and other adults must be the first line of defense to protect tech-savvy children from harm online, which is why we are pleased to announce the national launch of the Internet Safety 101SM Program.
Enough Is Enough will be hosting a press conference on February 17, 2010 in Washington D.C. and live on the Internet via Ustream. The event will feature Internet Safety 101SM experts, exclusive 101SM video excerpts, testimonials and our corporate sponsors.
We are grateful for the support of the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), U.S. Department of Justice, our corporate sponsors and which enables us to bring this critical program to the public. Thank you for standing with Enough Is Enough in our important mission to protect children from online dangers and to ensure children have a safe and rewarding experience online.
For the Sake of the Children,
Donna Rice Hughes
