Life in the Online World

Many agencies, schools run Internet Safety for younger kids.  However we have a group of kids, younger teens that are being over looked.  Optimist International has a program for these kids called "Life in the Online World". 

Part of the program includes a presentation that was recently filmed at the OI office using Octagon members.  As summer approaches and kids idle time increases I encourage all Optimists to operate the Internet Safety programs.

 Statistics show that 99% of all teens have access to the internet and 94% of students admitted to being cyber bullied and did not tell an adult. The importance of protecting the children in your community is a major undertaking and Optimists Clubs can play a vital role. In order to receive a packet, Clubs must complete the request form. One complimentary packet is available to each Club by request.

After completing the form, please mail it to:
Optimist International
Attn: Programs
4494 Lindell Blvd.
St. Louis, MO 63108

You can also fax the form to (314) 735-4125.
