Hands-On Privacy Workshop

Open to Girl Scouts in Grades 8-12th and their parents, this privacy workshop provides step-by-step instructions on how to change settings for mobile devices, apps, and social media accounts. 

Girl Scouts in 9th -12th grade have the opportunity to enter the annual Fall Privacy Essay Scholarship competition for the opportunity to win a $2,500 scholarship and all-inclusive trip with a guardian to the PrivacyxChange Forum from CyberScout. 

Girl Scouts will come away from this event with a valuable understanding of their online footprint and the digital world in which they live.  

"The ITRC Hands on Privacy Workshop and the CyberScout Scholarship opportunity has helped our girls Discover, Connect and Take Action to make the world a better place! This opportunity inspired Girl Scouts to discover what privacy is, connect the importance of privacy in their lives and take action by empowering them to share what they learned with their community.  It has been a pleasure working with the Identity Theft Resource Center to grow this program to reach as many Girl Scouts as possible to equip them with the knowledge and skills to safely utilize technology in their lives." Michaela, STEAM Program Specialist, Girl Scouts San Diego 

NOTE: This is not a drop-off event.  Girl Scouts are required to bring a guardian, troop leader or friend to help educate our community. Please register each Girl Scout and guest attending the event.
