Be Web Aware
What is Be Web Aware?
Be Web Aware is a national, bilingual public education program on Internet safety. The objective of everyone involved in this project is to ensure young Canadians benefit from the Internet, while being safe and responsible in their online activities.
The goal of the Be Web Aware initiative is two-fold:
1. Raise awareness amongst parents that there are safety issues when their children go online and that they need to get involved.
2. Provide practical information and tools that will equip parents to effectively manage Internet use in the home and to teach their kids to be Web savvy.
Child Find Manitoba is pleased to announce that the Kids in the Know personal safety program was officially launched in May, 2004. In supplement to the program, we have designed vulnerability sheets that are consistent with the curriculum and can be readily disseminated within communities. The sheets are to be used as a guide for parents to facilitate discussions with their children surrounding effective personal safety practices.
Please be advised that further information regarding personal safety, as well as programs and services available through Child Find Manitoba, is available on our website at www.childfind.mb.ca. If you require any additional information, please feel free to contact Child Find Manitoba directly at 945-5735.
