St. Kniaz Boris I Scholl in the town of Asenovgrad acquired 20 cyber scouts from the 5th grade who will train their peers for problems on the Internet and the ways to deal with them.
During the two-day training, students have learned how to recognize and deal with online risks, how to advise their peers when they are in a risky situation and how to organize public activities to promote learning to other children. The training was conducted in partnership with the National Center for Safety in Internet and Youth Centre Plovdiv.
The Youth Center is the official representative of the Center for Safe Internet for the Plovdiv region under the Cyber Scout program.
Within the next two months, new cyber scouts will have the opportunity to split up and organize and run public activities and to participate in a national competition between all cyber scouts trained throughout the year across the country.
The organizers of the three best activities will receive certificates from the General Directorate for Combating Organized Crime of the Interior Ministry on the International Day for Safety Online on 5 February 2019. In addition, cyber scouts will be able to perform missions to demonstrate and promote safe and responsible online behavior.
