COVID-19 has shut down schools but not PYE! We have a complete webinar process and we are actively scheduling live and digital talks for the 2021-2022 school year.
Custom Internet Safety Work for Your Organization
Over 500 presentations performed in the last 18 months and regular trips to DC advocating for families.
We Perform a Variety of Online Safety Presentations
Pornography Harms & Hopes (Parents and Caring Adults, 14+)
Every kid will be exposed to pornography...AND every parent and caring adult is capable of equipping their kids for this event. Be confident! Don't freak out! We'll cover both the relational tools for preparing kids for a hyper-sexualized world and discuss the best technical ways to keep the junk out of your home and away from their devices. Chris, PYE Founder, knows this issue first hand. Hope is possible!
Top Digital Safety Tips and Tricks (Parents and Caring Adults, 14+)
How many thousands of hours have we spent at PYE studying the best ways to monitor Chromebooks, train the Snapchat algorithm, set up a router, or fine-tune iPhone's Screen Time controls? We've lost track. But we'll share everything we've learned with YOU! You're going to want a fresh pen and maybe even have your devices next to you to help protect you and your precious kids from online harm.
The Big 4: Snapchat, Instagram, TikTok, and YouTube (Parents and Caring Adults, 14+)
What if I told you that only ONE of the above apps actually has parental controls? All four have various optional ways that they can be controlled, and we'll cover all of them, but four of the most popular apps on earth are extremely difficult to hold in check. Kids love these apps and each has its pro's and con's. We'll explain everything we know based on years of research, actual conversations with these organizations, test accounts, Senate testimony, and legislative work.
4 Layers of Digital Protection (Parents and Caring Adults, 14+)
Yes! It takes 4 layers in order to create an environment where kids are ready for an online world that really doesn't care about their safety and protection. This presentation covers the critical relational side of protection, PLUS monitoring software, DNS solutions, and other technical ideas for covering your bases. Both on the home network and when they're somewhere else. This one includes a lot of awesome, technical details! But, presented in a basic, and completely relatable way.
The Digital Culture of Kids (Parents and Caring Adults, 14+)
This is our bread and butter talk that has been delivered hundreds of times all over the USA and beyond to parents and caring adults who want a broad overview of the digital landscape and a whole list of basic tips for helping their awesome kiddo's navigate the risks. This talk also works great for adoption agencies, parent groups, and foster care groups.
Mental Health, Teens and Tech (Parents and Caring Adults, 14+)
Studies are starting to point toward a greater percentage of teens and young people who struggle with anxiety, depression, and suicide ideation. But why? What we don't talk about enough are the roles of history and parenting, and how the combination of those factors, combined with unfettered access to trending tragedy, create a toxic soup that's just too much for some young brains.
We Speak to a Variety of Organizations

"That presentation was five bills."
The response from a high school student when asked by PYE speaker Doug Crawford how it went. Don't worry. It's a good thing.
SENATE JUDICIARY HEARING
JULY 9, 2019
Protect Young Eyes founder Chris McKenna was asked to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on protecting children online. His testimony came as a result of his #FixAppRatings initiative, and is now shaping legislation that is attempting to prevent the exploitation of children.
