Education is the first step in keeping our kids safer in today’s technology-driven world. Technology
is only a tool, we can determine its function and value because it’s a conscious choice to do so.
However, research has shown that without good digital literacy education, it becomes more
challenging for students to make the right online choices. Our philosophy, “Let’s enlighten and not
frighten through evidence-based research and fact – not fear”


This very engaging presentation provides the knowledge, information, skills, and empowerment
that teens and young adults need to know, based on academically peer-reviewed research, actual
case studies, and our own empirical online investigative experience. In addition, we bring our first-
hand experience in working with students, parents, and educators who were confronted with a
bad situation online and needed our help and guidance. The goal of our program – educate
students on how to be safer, more digitally literate, savvy, and resilient when participating in the
online world.


Topics covered in the presentation:

  • Online Safety, Security, and Privacy Challenges and Solutions
  • Online Ethics, Empathy, and Judgement – building resiliency
  • Online Consumer and User Awareness Strategies
  • Online Emotional, Psychological, Physical, and Social Health Concerns and Solutions

One Step Ahead

We stay current on everything we do, and we have documented evidence that our presentation positively changes internet behaviour. We are also very proud of the fact that our programs have intervened in the lives of many, especially in our grade school programs where students who were contemplating suicide or self-harm as an option because they were in crisis or being targeted by cyberbullying or sexting went wrong issues. These students heard our empathetic message, reached out to us for help, and in each and every case (often working with their school) we were able to get them the help that they needed.
