High School

High school children have seen it all and really in the thick of creating online reputations – whether they know it or not. What they often don’t understand is that people besides their friends (i.e. Colleges, law enforcement, principals, parents and potential employers) are looking in on these behaviors regularly. With everything today being chronicled on social media, it’s important students this age fully understand where things go and how it can impact them today or 5-10 years down the line.
