Digital Programming and Online Safety for Our Youth
I will tell my trusted adult if anything makes me feel sad, scared, or confused.
I will ask my trusted adult before sharing information like my name, address, and phone number.
I won't meet face-to-face (in person) with anyone from the internet
I will always use good etiquette and not be rude or mean online.

Communication and Coordination
Communication and member coordination are essential to make this work. One tool that can help coordinate learning objectives is the MyFuture platform. BGCA has created the MyFuture platform to help Club staff deliver high-quality program experiences. Many of its activities are project-based and can be completed by members from home. Furthermore, the platform itself is flexible in that it can be accessed via a computer, tablet, or mobile phone. Therefore, it is an ideal programmatic platform to suit the at-home/distance-based Club experience.
Members can sign up for an account for the MyFuture platform (which will be approved by a BGCW staff member) in order to participate!
My.Future provides members with a safe, fun digital platform to showcase their work and earn recognition in the form of stars, badges and master badges. It’s a space where kids can interact with each other – free from the prospect of cyberbullying – and share their accomplishments locally and nationally. It’s a great way to experience BGCA’s digital programming, make friends and build a positive self-image through online achievement.
