Presentation about staying safe online
A presentation about staying safe online for young people and their families will be held at Umina PCYC on February 11.
PCYC NSW and the NSW Police Youth and Crime Prevention Command will be hosting the free interactive presentations which coincide with Safer Internet Day.
The presentations are based on the Australian Federal Police program ThinkUKnow, Australia's only nationally-delivered crime prevention program.
"The ThinkUKnow cyber safety program bridges the knowledge gap between adults and young people so that everyone has an understanding of the roles they play and what they can do if something goes wrong online," said PCYC NSW chief executive Mr Dominic Teakle.
"Cyber safety is a growing issue for young people, parents and the community.
"For many young people online interactions are as important as face-to-face ones.
"We want to empower them to manage their online relationships and develop safe and appropriate behaviour through open and honest discussions," Mr Teakle said.
