Can’t Quit Now!  Safe Social Networking and Gaming

Young people use technology for many of the same reasons adults do; entertainment, relaxation, to gain knowledge and to communicate with others.  Games, apps and social media (e.g., YouTube, Snapchat, Instagram) are popular technology pastimes for many youth.  When using these types of technology, young people are often exposed to:
  • adult related content
  • people unknown to the youth
  • explicit material
  • experience higher incidences of cyber bullying

To limit the risks that youth might experience online, parents/guardians may:
  • teach children proper use of technology
  • discuss use and risks with children frequently
  • install parent controls
  • be familiar with games, apps and social media your children are using

The Highmark Foundation has provided funding over the past ten years to help schools improve their bullying prevention and intervention efforts.  One of the important components of bullying prevention and intervention is parental involvement and education.   Parents whose children are targeted by bullying need information and resources to support their child through this difficult time.  In an effort to provide parents with the assistance they need, the Center for Safe Schools with funding provided by the Highmark Foundation developed the PA Bullying Prevention Toolkit and companion guides.  These free, downloadable tools are helpful to inform parents of the definition of bullying and how to support their children.  The PA Bullying Prevention Toolkit and companion guides can be accessed at:

Nicholas V. Cherico, a Clarion Area High School sophomore, was recently named a Ben Carson Scholar and will travel to Heinz Field in April for the prestigious awards ceremony. Nick was nominated in October by his guidance counselor, Mrs. Debbie Burford and Principal, John Kimmel.

The Carson Scholars Fund awards $1,000 college scholarships to students who excel academically and are dedicated to serving their communities. An interested student must be nominated by an educator at his or her school to be able to compete for a Carson Scholarship. Only one student from each school is able to apply, ensuring that each nominee epitomizes academic excellence. Carson Scholars must have a minimum GPA of 3.75 and display humanitarian qualities through community service.

The Carson Scholars Program is more than a simple monetary scholarship program. It starts young, encouraging a college-going culture in homes and schools across the country. Scholars have an incentive to achieve academically and are exposed to inspirational adult leaders. More importantly, Carson Scholars are role models in their schools and encourage their peers to succeed academically and contribute to their communities. Collectively, they are shaping a better future for themselves, their schools and the country.
