Savvy Cyber Kids



Savvy Cyber Kids is a nonprofit organization, whose mission is to enable youth, families, and school communities to be empowered by technology. We recognize that children may be Digital Natives but are also “Digital Naives”, who, without intervention, completely lack understanding of the implications of their digital actions. Savvy Cyber Kids resources are used in 43 states and 27 countries world-wide to help parents and teachers educate today’s youth on the topics of cyberbullying, digital reputation, technology and screen-time balance, mental health, body and self-image, physical safety, sexting, privacy, gaming, strangers, and more.
