Boy Scouts of America will now offer a social media certification patch designed for both parents and youth.

According to Boy Scouts of America’s official website, the program aims to:

  • Help individuals be safer while using social media
  • Bring purpose to usage of social media
  • Help individuals better understand how to get involved in discussions happening in social media
  • Encourage everyone to share their personal stories and thoughts on what is important to them
  • Flood the earth with good messages, including messages on how Scouting is preparing youth

There are six levels to the course, and each level must be presented to a mentor or leader upon completion. They range from beginner to an advanced consultant.

This certification patch is practical for all ages, and can be adapted to effectively accommodate various circumstances and situations. Visit LDS Media Talk for creative ideas on how to promote positive social media practices in your family.
