White Ribbon Week programs build confident and resilient children who make conscious,
positive choices in media and technology.
Our governing values:
White Ribbon Week is always positive and fun.
We promote using technology in safe, respectful and productive ways.
We empower children to take an active role in protecting themselves from harmful media.
We promote open and ongoing parent-child communication without judgment or shame.
We encourage children to adhere to their own unique family values.
We recognize pornography as damaging to individuals, families and society.
We do not use the word pornography in teaching children.
The scope of our program promotes the safe, positive and creative use of technology while teaching skills to recognize and reject cyberbullying, online security dangers, harmful and manipulative media messages, media violence, excessive screen time, distorted body image and indecent content.
