Listen to our experts:
There is a tremendous need for teens to have access to positive role models and tools to be successful not just in the classroom, but safe online, and happy in their life. We help teens build confidence and connections through our educational activities and community partners. Here are some excerpts from the Our March 2022 conference featuring over 12 experts including government officials and cyber security experts.

Operation: STOP Cyber Harassment was inspired by our CEO, Cairo Eubanks experiencing cyber-harassment and finding out that the same perpetrator was harassing over 30 individuals on her college campus. The first Operation: STOP Cyber Harassment event in March 2021 was so successful and over 150 teens were surveyed for meaningful follow-up. We realized parents and teens need access to these resources all year round. And that's how Op: STOP, the annual conference that coincides with our program modules: Mental health, asking for help, and identity was created.
“Through Op:STOP, we have made it our responsibility and our duty to create a space for teens to be able to engage with each other in a way that is safe, meaningful, and impactful.”

The SaferWatch App gives you the power to report non-emergency incidents as they happen anywhere in Broward County. SaferWatch covers more than 440 public, private and charter schools in Broward County.

In preparation for the 2nd annual Operation: STOP Cyber Harassment conference, Bringing the Globe launched anonymous surveys for parents and teens on social media usage.
Have you been bullied online?
Have you sent a message you regret?
Have you ever seen someone make a threat online?
If you see something illegal online, would you report it?
In our anonymous survey, parents shared that:
Do you monitor your child's phone?
Do you think your teen has secret social media accounts that you don't know about?
Has your child been bullied online?
Has your child bullied others online?
