Internet Safety

One of the major goals and responsibilities of our members is help promote awareness around Internet safety for children and their families.

HTCIA Internet Safety For Children Campaign

Starting in approximately 2003, the HTCIA partnered with five other organizations to address HTCIA's membership growing desire to conduct Internet Safety training in their geographic locations. As a direct result of this partnership the HTCIA Internet Safety For Children Campaign was created in 2004.

The focus of the HTCIA Internet Safety For Children Campaign was to be a catalyst, not a replacement, for existing "Internet Child Safety" programs. Its continuing strength has been that it recognizes that Internet Safety Training is not a one-size-fits-all concept. Different ages have different interests, patterns of behavior, and understanding of themselves and the world around them.

The HTCIA and its mission partners recognize that the Internet safety is a continuing issue that must be addressed by our membership and the public. We look forward to helping you provide this important training to your community's children. For more information on this program, please visit the campaign website.
