Cyber Savvy Workshops

Free Virtual Workshops for Adults & Adolescents

Our world is rapidly changing and technology is changing even faster! While many middle school and high school-aged youth are tech-savvy, they still need help navigating the cyber world and making responsible choices to keep themselves and their information safe. Promoting children’s safety and encouraging healthy boundaries in the cyber world can also be overwhelming for parents, guardians and grandparents. Join Syntero’s virtual Cyber Savvy Workshop to gain practical tips for the whole family:

  • Benefits and risks of youth engaging with technology
  • Developmental considerations and impact of excessive technology use
  • Enjoying technology through responsible digital citizenship
  • Communication around boundaries and expectations for safe technology use

Syntero’s newest group, Bright Futures for Families (BFF), provides support to youth ages of 12-18 who have been impacted by someone else’s substance use—a parent, sibling, or other significant person. BFF is a safe space for youth to share their emotions, gain understanding of what a substance use disorder is, and learn skills to express themselves and cope with the stressor in a healthy way. Syntero is able to provide this group through funding from ADAMH of Franklin County. For more information or to make a referral, please contact Syntero Substance Use Prevention Specialist Amanda Niedermeyer.

Syntero’s School-Based Program Meets Youth at Point of Need

Twenty percent of 13-18-year-olds live with a mental health condition and 17 percent of youth report that they have seriously considered taking their own life in the past year. These startling statistics are just some of the reasons why Syntero’s therapeutic interventions and prevention services for adolescents and teens are critical. A recent video; produced by Erica Wood, MA, LPCC-S, director of Youth and Prevention Services, Delaware/Morrow Counties; shares how Syntero’s school-based program is meeting youth at the point of need to help them process very complicated issues.
