Miss Florida supports MBF Booth at FCIS

 

Miss Florida, Marykatherine Fechtel, spent time with the Monique Burr Foundation for Children team at the 2015 Florida Council of Independent Schools Annual Convention recently in Orlando. With her platform of online safety and child exploitation prevention, Miss Florida agrees with us that Child Safety Matters. She spent several hours at the MBF booth visiting with school administrators and conference attendees sharing our program and message. We would like to thank Miss Florida for her support and for her commitment to protecting children from online dangers.

What They're Saying...

There’s not a child in the world who can’t benefit from this program. There are so many instances where we see children who have been damaged and hurt. Things happened to them and we think, if they’d only had this program, if they’d only had the benefit of this education, that might not have happened to them. If we can prevent that from happening to a single child, then it’s worth all the effort we have put forth.

The MBF Teen Safety Matters curriculum hosts an in-depth approach to important social and safety concerns relevant to youth. The program content is age-appropriate with engaging activities, jargon, and realistic situations to positively promote a relatable and impacting learning experience…Teen Safety Matters is an educational benefit to all parties involved – students, parents, facilitators, and schools.

I heard about the program through my son. He came home…and showed me the safety rules. I cannot thank the Foundation enough; to have other people who are also concerned about my child’s safety and the safety of other kids is wonderful. I especially like the program’s focus on the prevention side.
