YMCA/Google Be Internet Awesome Parent Workshops
YMCA of Chicago and Suburbs
In celebration of Safer Internet Day, the YMCA of Metro Chicago will host 65 Google Be Internet Awesome workshops across the Chicagoland area to teach parents how to instill healthy and responsible Internet habits in their children. Visit event website for list of participating locations.
The workshops will feature discussion-based, parent-to-parent conversations about how to help children be safe, smart and positive online. Families will learn to teach their children how to communicate responsibly, understand real from fake in the face of phishing and scams, build strong passwords, be positive and kind online, and how to discuss questionable content as a family. Parents will receive free bilingual resources, answers to questions about online safety and digital citizenship, and tools and information to help facilitate discussions at home.
Some workshops will be presented in English and Spanish. Many locations will provide on-site child care during the workshop.
