Q: What is Project B3?
A: Project B3 is a program that prevents the risks of cyberbullying, pornography, sexting, abduction and reputation damage by instilling habits in elementary kids to be safe, be smart and be kind while using the internet.
Q: Where are Project B3 sessions held?
A: Project B3 can take place at any elementary school or community space. We come during the regular school day at a time of your choice. Currently we are stationed out of Northern Illinois, but we are rapidly expanding our reach and availability. Contact us to see if your school is eligible.
Q: How many students can attend a Project B3 session?
A: We can address groups of 100 students at a time. We split the students into 3 smaller groups so it creates a fun, casual and more intimate environment. This way students can feel comfortable sharing information and asking questions.
Q: How long is a session?
A: Each Project B3 session is one hour. However, if you want us to address more than 100 students, we can schedule multiple one-hour time slots throughout the day or school week.
Q: Why do students act as leaders in the Project B3 sessions?
A: We find that the most meaningful way to teach kids about digital responsibility is to have their older peers act as the mentors. We see how younger kids admire their upper classmates and use the opportunity mold them into the prime examples of internet safety. This way the kids can relate more with their peers and feel inspired to follow in their lead.
Q: How are the student leaders chosen?
A: We ask that school administrators and teachers choose students from eighth-grade classes who would be appropriate mentors for the younger grades. In certain situations, we ask neighboring high schools to appoint high school students to be the leaders. In either case, we train and prepare them to present Project B3 to their peers.
Q: Do you have a program for parents?
A: We offer a complimentary The Parent Feed that teaches parents how to keep their families safe from digital threats. We educate parents by walking them through the top apps kids are using and how to prevent misuse.
