Organizing a Group?http://www.teenangels.org
Teenangels are a group of thirteen to eighteen year old volunteers that
have been specially trained in all aspects of online safety, privacy
and security. After completion of the required training, the Teenangels
run unique programs in schools to spread the word about responsible and
safe surfing to other teens and younger kids, parents, and teachers.
They write columns for Web sites and become expert public speakers and
researchers. They work with companies like Disney, Microsoft and AOL
and are trained by law enforcement agencies; their tuition includes
experience in making presentations to groups of students in schools
and/or at community events.
Teenangels have even been to the House of Representatives in Washington
D.C., for the WiredKids Summit, where they presented their research to
a powerful and influential audience.
