Social Media Awareness
65% of online adults have a Facebook page.
Every year, teachers and staff get fired because of photos, comments they put on their personal page, and connecting with students. They need to know the potential pitfalls of using social media.
In our modern, interconnected culture, social media has become indispensable to our everyday lives. It is a rushing river that everyone is a part of and it cannot be stopped. However, for the sake of our personal lives, our family, and our students, we must learn how to navigate it safely.
Identity Theft Awareness
The average person will not discover they are a victim until 14 months after the crime.
Once an identity is stolen, it will take 175-600+ hours to recover it! Nobody’s got time for that. Spending time out of work is simply not an option.
It is the simple, everyday choices that either create an opportunity for an identity thief or protect your identity from being stolen. From having too much information about yourself on your Facebook profile to simply not being aware of your credit score, your identity can be easily compromised.
Data Breach Prevention
88% of data breaches are caused by employee error!
We know that you hired some fantastic people for your school. They would never intentionally compromise sensitive information or use it with malicious intent.
However, if your employees are not proactively thinking about the potential of outside data thieves, then they could be unwittingly aiding a data breach. Every year, small employee errors are exploited and major data breaches occur.
Active Shooter Response Options
Lockdown is NOT enough! You need OPTIONS!
If we have drills for fires, earthquakes and bomb threats, why don’t we have drills for active shooters?
In 2016, we had more mass shootings than any other year in our history as a nation.
Seconds are lives in these situations.
The body cannot go where the mind has never been. Do you actively analyze your surroundings to prepare yourself for an active shooter? Our training takes your mind to that place.
Are your students in trained hands?
BeSafe In CyberSpace:
Sexting, CyberBullying, and Social Media
39% of teens have been or are involved in sexting!
48% of teens say they have received a sexually suggestive message (sexting).
50% of students have been bullied online (cyberbullying). About the same number have engaged in cyberbullying other people. 18-year-old Jessie Logan committed suicide after a nude photo that she sent to her boyfriend was sent out to 7 other school districts. As a result, she was bullied in the hallways and online until eventually she took her own life. In this session, Students will be made aware of the many dangers of social media, sexting, and cyberbullying.
They’ll be hit with a wake-up call: real-life stories, legal ramifications, and a call to action to make a difference in their generation.

The Digital YOU
Students are losing valuable college scholarships and job opportunities because of their social media.
The vast majority of students use at least one social media site per day. Most students check their Facebook first thing in the morning! However, most students have never been taught proper etiquette when it comes to using these social networks and are often putting themselves at risk online.
From local junior colleges to private universities, admissions officers are daily scanning the social media of students to see how well they represent themselves online. We have heard story after story of students losing their college scholarship because of a post they made online. High School athletes have been expelled because of things they have said on their Twitter.
Not only colleges, but also employers are looking at social media to find out the real “you” before they hire based off of a polished application or interview. Students need to know how to manage their social media
(their Digital YOU) to attract better scholarships and job opportunities.
Don't be like DAVE:
Drugs, Alcohol, Vaping, and Ecigs
We all know that Smoking is bad for you, the nationwide campaign has successfully disseminated this knowledge, but is Vaping a safer option?
The vapor contains known carcinogens and toxic chemicals including metal nanoparticles, high levels of nickel and chromium (which may come from the nichrome heating coils of the vaporizing device) and levels of cadmium, a toxic metal also found in cigarette smoke that can cause breathing problems and disease.
According to a vaping study by New York University, vaping is SIGNIFICANTLY WORSE than smoking regular tobacco, it causes Lung and Bladder Cancer, it causes multiple heart diseases including increased risk for heart attack and stroke, and researchers have projected that as more research is done, more deadly side effects will be discovered.
The stats for smoking and drugs are even more sickening. Almost 9 out of 10 smokers start smoking before they turn 18, many students start using tobacco by age 11 and are addicted by age 14, by 8th grade, most students think that using alcohol is okay, and at age 12 or 13, students are already using illegal drugs or prescription pain relievers.
The unfortunate reality is that schools are the first line of defense that we can really reach and reinforce. Is your school taking that role seriously?
