Cole Parkinson, Utah NetSmartz Director

"As educators in this field, we have an amazing opportunity to empower young people. They are the future tech leaders."


The Utah NetSmartz program educates K-12 students about digital safety, health, citizenship and leadership. NetSmartz has provided these services to Utah students (and parents) for the past 14 years. Program funding was provided by the state of Utah with the purpose of protecting our children from online exploitation and digital dangers. Additionally, the NetSmartz program assists schools in meeting requirements to provide annual student digital citizenship trainings (H.B. 372).
