Social Media for Kids!

While you're getting your final rounds of voting in for our Crown Heights Do-Gooders, I want to tell you about another group of do-gooders, the trio that's put together Social Media for Kids. You can read all about them in the New York Daily News, so I'll keep this quick: the program, which launched today at Mott Hall Bridges Academy, teaches students about the perils and pitfalls of social media sites and targets hot-topic online issues, including bullying and harassment. They'll also be offering an after-school program right here in the neighborhood at Lily and Fig Cafe this fall.

Founding partners Mike Fink, Casey Miller and Garnett Alcindor (of Collective Concept PR, which helped lead the Franklin Avenue Kids Day) have a great vision, and they're looking for sponsors to help them bring their program to more students in Brooklyn and beyond. If you'd like to get involved call 347.687.SMFK or email smfk10 {at} gmail {dot} com.
