I am so appreciate of the kind and positive comments and reviews that I constantly receive from people who have attended a Digital Empowerment Project event. I am inspired by the commitment that trusted adults have to empower our children and teens.

The Digital Empowerment Project has very active social media sites, including a private Facebook Parent Network. Please consider finding the DEP on social media and engaging with other parents and educators.

Appreciate Your Time

Everyone that I followed up with had nothing but good things to say about the presentation and most of them were thinking of how they can get you to come to their kids’ school to present there as well. Thank you again for taking the time to come visit our base and talk to our people, we truly appreciate your time and thanks for what you do!

Must Experience

I just got back from the Digital Empowerment for Parents seminar. I cannot express STRONGLY ENOUGH how important it is that you experience this. It was EYE-OPENING, heart breaking, and though provoking. It should be a required class before buying your kid a phone.

Ken Rawson - Youth Pastor

Engaging Presentation

Thank you for all you are doing. Your presentation with our students had a huge impact and I thought was done extremely well. To get middle school age kids interested and to keep them engaged for an hour straight is very impressive. Keep up the good work!

Powerful Presentation

 I especially thank you for spending time with our students yesterday.  You gave parents the tools they need to be able to talk with their kids….and kind of know what they’re talking about:)  Your presentation is one of the most powerful I have ever heard.  Keep up the great work!

Positive Comments

Your program was outstanding. Many times when we do school wide assemblies the teachers complain about losing class time.  Not this time. I had nothing but positive comments from both MS and HS staff. Keep up the good work.

Shines a Light

I can’t say enough about how educational Mr. Frank’s presentation was for our parents. While managing our children’s digital activities can seem scary and overwhelming, Mr. Frank shines a light on exactly why we need to be paying attention while giving parents tools and the confidence to protect their children. We are looking forward to having Mr. Frank back to speak with our students as well. You can never get the important message of digital safety to your students too much!
