The digital world takes another step toward becoming a safer place today with the launch of A Platform for Good, the interactive program where parents, teachers and teens can share experiences and information about online safety.
Sprint is proud to sponsor of this new initiative created by the Family Online Safety Institute (FOSI), a nonprofit organization that promotes online safety.
This marks another in a series of efforts by Sprint to help families and educators gain free and easy access to resources that promote kids’ safety online. Our company is committed to supporting organizations that work to create a digital world where young people can continue to work, learn and play safely.
A Platform for Good sets out to foster digital responsibility and increase awareness of online safety by making tools accessible that will spark conversations about the role of digital technology and how to participate in the digital world responsibly.
Leveraging other social platforms, A Platform for Good:
Offers information and conversation tips to parents.
Recommends opportunities and tools for teachers to address Internet safety.
Provides incentives for teens to participate in online activities that focus on safety issues.
The platform was sponsored by Sprint along with other industry leaders and the Family Online Safety institute.
Another helpful resource is our 4NetSafety site, www.4NetSafety.com. This site features the latest Internet-safety information from Boys & Girls Clubs of America and the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children.
