Street Hope

Navigating the Digital World Project

In 2015, 90% of all youth-produced sexual content was harvested and redistributed on a third-party website, and on any given month, 100 children will be listed for sale for sex online in TN. It is imperative for youth today to receive internet safety and online exploitation prevention education. Street Hope has identified a gap in resources needed to assist adults in teaching such education and to equip youth with the tools necessary to prevent online exploitation. As a result, they have partnered with Knox County Schools, Department of Homeland Security, and Social Media Education, Jamie Fromberger to create a comprehensive internet safety video series curriculum called Project Post: Positive Online Social Tools. Their goal is to reach youths, 11-17 years old, with the potential to reach 17,000 students in Knox County Schools alone.
