Despite a pandemic & economic uncertainty, (and even health issues) Jo Phillips and I are pretty proud to have successfully opened a whole new business, alongside what we’ve already accomplished at Joe Social Media Inc. and even created Summer jobs while we’re at it.
  
Have you heard of Jo(e) Youth Creative yet? You will.
Every adult knows or has some amazing, creative kids, that love to perform, create, draw, dance, produce, direct or play. These kids are using their devices, cameras and social channels to share cool content, to watch creators around the world, to learn and to communicate positively with their friends.
Kids are generating remarkable online channels and content but most adults keep them at arms length, based on fear or lack of knowledge. This is leaving good kids, who see obvious digital opportunities and fun, right in front of them, without permission to explore or achieve. These misconceived notions from parents, of what kids are actually doing online, is creating untrust and misunderstandings, because the internet and almost all media you see, tells us kids are doing terrible things online.
Joe Youth Creative is a first-of-its-kind, safe mentorship and learning space for kids! But it’s also for you!
Adults, seniors and kids have got to get on the same page when it comes to digital learning.
We’re running Summer camps and clubs in TikTok, YouTube, Instagram and many other unique social media opportunities for kids. (Space is very limited, due to Covid restrictions & we practice ALL health and safety guidelines).
We also have social media training and learning for adults and seniors.
Jo(e) isn’t about adding more screen time for your family, it’s about mentoring safe use, developing confident kids, fostering creativity, empowering youngsters to openly talk about the digital things they love at home, and even creating entrepreneurship opportunities, on amazing platforms, that have never been exposed or explored before, due to the negativity that surrounds every breath about social media in our world.
Jo and I have done our research, by touring in schools and speaking with 10’s of thousands of kids, parents, teachers, educators and experts.
We’re trusted, across the province, in our field.
We know there are plenty of good kids, doing great things online and we are desperately trying to support them, in what they’re doing, instead of banning and forbidding them from places adults admittedly know little about.
Please like our pages and check out our clubs, camps and courses. I’m wide open to any and all of your questions.
