The Mission of the Social Media Awareness Youth Summit
is to create a space that engages real life, educated conversations about the influence of the social media culture. In this space we will bring together mothers, fathers, children, community leaders, and influencers. Our goal is to achieve commonality and a safe space to be transparent. Ultimately we are creating a new narrative!
We are taking control and having those important conversations attached to Social Media. We will talk about social anxiety, depression, cyber-bullying, age appropriate content, engagement and interaction pros and cons, power of influence, benefits, and the many success stories happening right now! We are opening the platform to all children and parents, community leaders,
Sponsorship opportunities are available. Contact Natasha Tucker at info@TheCelebrityKids.com for more information.
