ANNOUNCING:  CSI Cybersafety Camp 2017  For flier and info – Click Here


Our CyberSafety program teaches elementary school students, middle school students, high school students and parents, strategies to stay safe online. WACC uses age-appropriate classroom workshops, presentations, and school assemblies to teach children, youth, and parents about online predators, sexting, and one’s digital reputation.

95% of American teens regularly use the internet. While the internet adds a lot of value to children’s lives, it also presents serious risks. Due to its expansive and ever-changing nature, it is crucial to teach children, youth, and their parents how to use the internet safely.

If you would like to schedule a CyberSafety presentation for your school or classroom or would like to learn more about our CyberSafety program, email Robin Batten, Cyber Safety Coordinator at robin@washtenawchildren.org or call us at (734) 434-4215.

In 2016,
297 parents and community members learned how to use the Internet safely
