LEHI, UTAH, SEPTEMBER 13, 2023
The D. Gary Young, Young Living Foundation is celebrating National Online Learning Day this September 15 by sharing its free e-learning course to help families keep their children safe while navigating the challenges of today's digital landscape. "Keeping Kids Safe in the Digital World" was created in collaboration with Hope for Justice and is designed to empower parents with knowledge and tools to help youth minimize risky online interactions.
National Online Learning Day celebrates the strides in digital learning and the importance of progress made in advancing distance learning. The Young Living Foundation is highlighting its safety course as part of the larger push to increase accessibility for educational purposes.
"Everyone is capable of becoming an advocate for children, and the online nature of this course makes it all the more accessible to a wider audience," says Arturo Fuentes, Director of Philanthropy at Young Living Essential Oils. "We invest in programs like this as part of our larger mission to nurture potential and rescue the harmed, so that children are free to dream and create with safety parameters in place.
"The prevalence of perpetrators grooming and exploiting children online is growing at an alarming rate—the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children saw an 82 percent increase in reports concerning online enticement last year, which included an alarming new trend where offenders aggressively blackmail children for financial gain.
While completing the course, users will learn what online exploitation is, gain tools and insight into how to spot key danger signs, discover tips for digital safeguards, become more confident having these conversations with children, and know what actions to take if a child is being cyberbullied. Parents, educators, caregivers, and all those who complete the three-course module will join the Young Living Foundation in pledging to protect children worldwide.
