Nine in ten (93%) teens in the US have a computer or have access to one at home.

“Net-iquette” is a comprehensive media campaign to help youth, parents and educators understand the potential dangers associated with use of the internet from stalking and cyber-bullying to sext-ing and future employment issues. This program gives them specific tools and suggestions to make the best use of the internet and stay safe.

Because our youth have grown up in a cyber world that is seamlessly integrated with our daily lives, many parents and other adult leaders are not completely familiar with all the various internet apps, tools and sites that allow people to connect in good and bad ways. Many times, children are more comfortable in that world than the adults who are supposed to look out for them. While we teach our youth the etiquette of various social interactions: restaurant behavior, respect for teachers, adults and each other, sporting event behavior, etc; many adults don’t understand enough to give them guidelines for the cyber on-line world. This is a program that will help.

Drivers using cell phones are 5 times more likely to crash than non-distracted drivers.

People areas impaired as being drunk when they drive and talk on a cell phone.

Texting is the number one killer of teenagers in the US.

“DRIVEN” is a comprehensive media campaign to help youth and parents understand the dangers associated with distracted driving, particularly cell phone use, and give them specific tools and suggestions to lessen the chance of a crash.

The project involved teens extensively in the production process and the social marketing aspects of the campaign so they could learn for themselves the various issues and reasons for distracted driving and become champions for the cause with their peers. The program highlights the most recent brain research involving cell phone use, DWI, and other causes of crashes and focus on the extremely high numbers for distracted driving crashes especially for young people.

While the project revolved around the documentary, the real reach and effectiveness of the campaign was through the involvement of youth in the creation of the project and dissemination of the program to schools and by print and television news stories carried as a result of the documentary.

SEA OF CHANGE

Sea of ChangeThis one-hour documentary narrated by Montel Williams, follows a 24 year old paralyzed woman, Cody Unser, who leads nine war veterans, living in wheelchairs themselves, on an experience they never believed they could have, on a reef 60 feet below the surface of the sea. In the process, this amazing experiment chronicled by Johns Hopkins doctors may change the lives of anyone with paralysis.

Director Chris Schueler films for Sea of ChangeTraveling with the Cody Unser First Step Foundation, war vets and a research team from Johns Hopkins School of Medicine & Kennedy Krieger Institute, this trip to the Cayman Islands examined a surprising question: Can scuba diving positively impact paralysis and PTSD?

The medical research team, lead by Dr. Adam Kaplin and Dr. Daniel Becker, discover amazing results that could forever change the way paralysis and PTSD is treated and the way those in wheelchairs live their lives.

BYSTANDERS ENDING BULLYING

OVER 3 in 10 middle school students (31.2%) and almost 2 in 10 high school students (18.7%) say they have been bullied on school property.
New Mexico Youth Risk and Resiliency Survey 2011

The word bullying has become a watchword nationally for hurtful behavior that has led to horrific consequences including suicide. It can be motivated by actual or perceived characteristics such as race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, gender, sexual orientation or identity, or any kind of disability.
As the media continues to lead with stories related to the issue and school districts across the state and around the country hear outcries from parents, the definition and ways to deal with the issue are becoming more and more important. This program defines bullying and discusses why and how young people become targets and aggressors. We also learn how the power really lies with the BYSTANDERS, the 85% of students who are seeing this happen and what they can do to help end bullying.
