The most vulnerable youth need our protection.

Teenage foster youth are on social media like other teens, but, unfortunately, they are at even higher risk than other youth for many social media-related dangers including:

  • Cyberbullying
  • Violence
  • Hate speech
  • Human trafficking

Partnering With Child Welfare Agencies

The Organization for Social Media Safety will work with your Child Welfare Agency to:

  • Provide instruction for foster youth, foster parents, and social workers on essential social media safety skills
  • Compile a data snapshot of how social media-related dangers are impacting foster youth in your area
  • Consult on policies to enhance social media safety for foster youth
