Scouts learn dangers of cyber bullying

With a goal of warning scouts of the dangers of cyber bullying and cyber predators, Cub Scout Pack 141 began their cyber education.

“Today’s youth are spending more time than ever using digital media for education, research, socializing, and fun. To help families and volunteers keep youth safe while online, the Boy Scouts of America introduces the Cyber Chip,” said pack 141 leader Terry Hancock. “In developing this exciting new tool, the BSA teamed up with content expert NetSmartz®, part of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children® and training expert for many law enforcement agencies.”

He said topics include cyber bullying, cell phone use, texting, blogging, gaming, and identity theft.

“Scouts who earn the BSA Cyber Chip, have shown they understand and agree to certain rules of cybersafety,” he said.
