NetSmartz Assembly


Students at Sierra Bonita enjoyed the NetSmartz assembly today given by Cole Parkinson. The assembly goes over internet safety and is an interactive, educational program of the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children® (NCMEC) that provides age-appropriate resources to help teach children how to be safer on- and offline. The program is designed for children ages 5-17, parents and guardians, educators, and law enforcement. With resources such as videos, games, activity cards, and presentations, NetSmartz entertains while it educates.

Our Goals

    Educate children on how to recognize potential Internet risks

    Engage children and adults in a two-way conversation about on- and offline risks

    Empower children to help prevent themselves from being exploited and to report victimization to a trusted adult

For more information on these interactive videos and games, please go to netsmartz.org OR for teens visit nsteens.org.
