EPIK

Contact: Michelle Linford, Executive Director

EPIK was created with one purpose in mind: to unite parents and youth, non-profits, businesses, government entities and educational institutions to help create a deliberate digital generation.

Children today are called digital natives — they grow up using technology so much that they usually know more than their parents, often from a very early age. And yet, do they know enough to make technology a helpful tool, not their master?

Studies would show that they don’t. Youth spend between 8-11 hours a day using different media devices. Real risks such as pornography, cyberbullying, and child predators exist. And yet not all technology is problematic; in fact, never before has the use of technology been more integral to life and career preparation. Creative technology use can facilitate service and community involvement and relationship building. It is the rising generation that can help our world leverage technology’s power.

How can a generation of adults help digital natives become more deliberate and balanced in their media use? No organization can do it alone. Parents can’t do it alone. Education and policy are insufficient. And since all of us have potential pieces of the answer, the time is now to come together and involve our youth in the process of discovering lasting solutions that can help empower our youth to be deliberate digital leaders.
