Allstate Cyber Safety for Kids

Date: 7th Jul 2022 Author: Michael Croft

Allstate have a FREE Cyber Safety program for kids aged 6-9 which helps teach children how to stay safe online.

Our goal is to give every child the knowledge and tools they need to navigate their online world safely.

The program consists of a 45minute – 1hour training session which covers three key topics:

  • FRIEND OR PRETEND: Teaching children that strangers they talk to online are not real friends and signs that someone could be acting suspiciously.
  • BEWARE WHAT YOU SHARE: A discussion around the importance of thinking about what you share online, and the dangers of sharing information.
  • DON’T BE MEAN ON SCREEN: Children engage in an activity about cyber-bullying and how they should think about what they say before posting it online.

The program has been successfully running since 2018 and has since been delivered to over 15,000 kids globally. I would also like to add that the program, in terms of content, aligns with the BSA Cyber Chip blue card and Internet safety pledge that the Girl Guides sign up to.

If you would be interested in signing up for a session for your youth organisation or community group, you can do so via completing our booking form or email AllstateCyberSafety@allstate.com expressing your interest.

There is a flyer with more information about the program which you can see here. You can also find out more via our website: https://www.allstate.com/cybersafety/forkids/youth-organizations.aspx. If you would like any further information, please don’t hesitate to reach out and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
