Carolyn Cox of Virginia Beach, Virginia asks:
“Optimist International, one of the Big 4 of community services groups, focuses their volunteer efforts on ‘Bringing Out the Best in Kids. Right Here. Right Now.’
“We recently joined the I Keep Safe Coalition in order to help keep kids safe on the Internet. Our first effort is focused on bringing speakers (teens and adults) into the elementary schools with a program to instill a safe Internet ethic in kids BEFORE they create their own page at MySpace.com or enter chat rooms.
“The coalition sent a press release, which got zero response. How can we get the word out to parents and schools that we are here to deliver programs to groups of school age children, within or without the schools?”
