Empowerment and Digital Wellness
Peer to Peer Digital Citizenship Curriculum
Matthew Soeth, Co-Founder Executive Director #ICANHELP
What we do?
#ICANHELP educates and empowers students to use social media positively and celebrate their achievements through #Digital4Good, our nationally live-streamed award event hosted at the headquarters of well-known social media companies, including Twitter and Facebook.
Why we do it?
Nearly half of American children have been cyberbullied online. #ICANHELP's mission is to educate and empower students and adults to use social media positively.
Rather than tell students what not to do, we show them what they can do. We started in 2013 working with students to help them manage online drama through training on how to report and respond to negative content and build positive social media campaigns. Since then, we launched #Digital4good, our annual event celebrating student work. #Digital4Good celebrates and rewards students for their efforts. The #ICANHELP curriculum is in that same spirit as it provides a structure and framework for young people to talk about about bigger social issues as well as have a system to implement change on their campus or in their community.
