In 2007, Sprint partnered with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and the National Education Association Health Information Network to create 4NetSafety, a free resource to provide Internet–safety information to “tweens” and their parents, guardians and educators. Since that time, the program has grown and added a new partner, Boys and Girls Clubs of America.
4NetSafety tools offer guidance on important Internet–safety topics like cyberbullying, sharing of personal information while online, and general safety tips while social networking and gaming. Materials are presented in age– and audience–appropriate mediums; for instance, materials for educators are designed to help these educators teach their pupils appropriate online behaviors, while materials for tweens use engaging, comic–book–style games and cartoons.
Sprint has taken a deliberate stance against distracted driving through its Focus on Driving program, which aims to educate customers and the public about the dangers of texting while driving. Our 4Net Safety program provides helpful tips and tools to educate “tweens” and their parents about internet safety.
Sprint funds 4NetSafety with proceeds from Sprint Project Connect, our charitable phone–recycling program. Sprint Project Connect collects phones, accessories and aircards, regardless of service provider, and prepares them for re–use or recycling.
