Workshop Description:  In the Protect Your Peace Online presentation, youth will learn how to navigate media and the internet in a safe and healthy way. The session will talk about the pros and cons of social media (Snapchat, Tik Tok, YouTube, Twitter, Discord, and Reddit), how media platforms impact our mental health, the dangers of predators, and risk of exploitation/trafficking. Participants will walk away with ways to balance screen time, healthy coping skills, and knowledge of how to protect themselves online.
