Online sexual exploitation of children, like all forms of child sexual abuse, are not the responsibility of children to prevent. NCMEC believes we can work together to prevent exploitation and help children and families heal. This session shares research-based strategies to educate children to make safer choices online and report suspicious behavior, as well as highlights the support services NCMEC can provide to families, and the growing Community Education Partnership Program model. This is part one of the three part series, Protect Our Youth Online: A Virtual Event to Start the Conversation. Part two of the series is titled Self-Generated Content and Sextortion Awareness and Prevention Panel Discussion, and part three, U.S. and International Technology Safety Expert Panel Discussion. Each part is now available for viewing.
