Cyber Smart Mentor Training is for everyone within your organization who works with children or families. It is a must have for social workers, counselors, therapists, club leaders, and volunteers.
If you are like most organizations in Canada, you have a huge problem with your volunteers, faculty and staff right now – Your mentors are not as tech savvy as the kids they work with. In fact, most adults do not feel comfortable speaking with kids about technology issues for that reason. But that’s not the end of your problems with leading kids safely through the digital world.
What makes this even worse is the fact that kids are using technology in your groups, events and outings in ways that your mentors might not be aware of. And since most kids believe that adults aren’t are tech savvy enough to help them, even when there is a problem within your organization they won’t come to your mentors with these issues.
