In the effort to expand continued Internet safety education to as many young people as possible, the Safe Surfin’ Foundation,(SSF) under the guidance of Chairman, Sheriff Mike Brown, announces the implementation of the Cyber S.W.A.T. Team; Safety While Accessing Technology.
This program utilizes the training of high school students in the delivery of age-appropriate Internet safety lessons, and then the senior students take these safety messages to the middle and elementary grades.
The first Cyber S.W.A.T. Team is already in full-swing at Jefferson Forest High School where they are currently promoting their Cyber Safety Week, raising awareness of Online safety and how to best avoid falling victim to online sexual predators, to hundreds of students at their school.
The second Cyber S.W.A.T. pilot program is slated for the Los Angeles School district beginning the first of the year. This program will be made available in Spanish to benefit the youth of Hispanic communities.
Thursday is the official ‘kick off’ of Cyber S.W.A.T. at JFHS, with lots of surprises and fun-while-learning events for students and faculty.
The media is invited to attend the announcement on
Thursday, December 8th, 8:30 am
Jefferson Forest High School Library
to learn about the Cyber S.W.A.T. program and the plans to roll this out as a nation-wide project.
More detailed information on this innovative program will be available at the media event.
