The Safe and Secure Online Girl Scout Patch Program

 

The Safe and Secure Online Patch Program, created by the Center for Cyber Safety and Education, is offered to teach and empower Girl Scouts of all ages to remain safe, protect their identity, and respect themselves and others while online. The Cyber Safety Patch Program tackles everyday issues girls can relate to, such as privacy, the dangers of posting online, netiquette, and cyberbullying.

Outcomes:

  • Introduce and reinforce basic cyber safety principles
  • Empower Girls to respect themselves and others online
  • Provide unique learning and volunteering opportunities

Patch Requirements are different for each troop grade level.

 

Daisies, Brownies, Juniors and Cadettes will have interactive lessons that will keep their attention and teach basic internet safety practices with Garfield’s Cyber Safety Adventures. Special training for troop leaders is not required because the Educator’s Kit includes step-by-step instructions to conduct the lesson. Each lesson can be completed in 20-30 minutes, for about $2.16 each.

Senior and Ambassador Scouts will use their experience and leadership to teach the younger girls by hosting a Garfield Cyber Safety Adventure class or Senior Citizens Safe and Secure Online class.
