PROVIDING DIGITAL LIFE SKILLS FOR TODAY’S YOUTH.

At DFI, we empower instructors and parents with resources and solutions to help guide today’s digitally-connected youth in a positive direction—so they can make better decisions, mitigate digital threats and use the power of digital, mobile and social media in a positive way.

HOW WE HELP

We provide training programs for instructors and parents on how to educate kids on digital issues including cyberbullying, sexting, loss of emotional intelligence, substance use and more—which, if not caught, can ultimately result in more dangerous situations such as human trafficking and domestic violence.

Instructors

Our adaptive learning platform gives teachers, school boards and school resource officers (SROs) the resources necessary to effectively address issues affecting students that arise from digital use, with progressive, in-class lessons. Discover ways to get certified in our curriculum today.

Parents

By providing an understanding of the power of all digital media and its implications for today’s youth, we help you identify the digital content your child has access to and how they use it, so you can communicate with them more effectively about it.
