It is no secret that social media plays a large, maybe even dominant, role in the lives of young people. However, young people are often unaware of just how much personal information they are sharing and who has access to this information. This program will look at the realities of youth and their use of social media, including the legal and moral implications of that use.
This training is made possible by the Pennsylvania Masonic Youth Foundation
By the end of this workshop, participants will have:
- Reviewed current data on and use of digital media and young people;;
