Community Awareness Series: Promoting Healthy Behaviors

Community Awareness Series: Promoting Healthy Behaviors 

Our youth are our future’s greatest asset. Schools, parents, caregivers and communities all play a role in providing supportive pathways for our youth as they navigate childhood and adolescence. SCIP (School Community Intervention and Prevention) is partnering with Lincoln Public Schools, Bryan Independence Center and the Lancaster Prevention Coalition to put on a series of valuable presentations about how to support the health and well-being of our community’s youth. These events are open to parents, students, school professionals and community members.

Presentation:

Ryan Sothan is the Outreach Coordinator within the Nebraska Attorney General’s Office. Within his role, he has statewide responsibility for developing and implementing community-based initiatives for educating Nebraskans in the area of Internet Safety. For students and parents alike, with today’s technology it is more often what we don’t know that has the greatest potential to do us harm. Ryan’s presentation will raise awareness of youth online safety, including social media use, dangerous apps parents should be on the lookout for, cyberbullying and resources and tools that can guide adults in monitoring youth online behaviors.
