Spotlight: Girls Presents…
Be Creative. Be Safe. Be You. Online.
Use the Go Girls!™ Culture Code as your guide to be creative, be safe and be you…online.
DO make media about topics that matter to YOU! Do you heart animals? Obsessed with anime? Dream of becoming a chef? – Whatever you’re into, there is someone else out there who wants to hear about it.
DON’T share personal information like your last name, phone number, your address. It’s important to set boundaries online to keep yourself safe.
DO become part of an online community as a way to make new friends. Social networks exist to help us connect with others who care about the same things we do. But…
DON’T ever make a plan to hang out in person with anyone you meet online without talking to your parents about it first. They can help you know if the person online is who they say they are.
DO be willing to be silly, have fun and try new things!
DON’T worry if you make a mistake. You can take something down. And be sure to apologize if your mistake hurts someone’s feelings.
DO notice how certain media makes you feel. Do certain comments, ads, or messages make you feel angry, jealous, or scared? If these kinds of feelings come up, ask an adult you trust for help.
DON’T let your feelings cause you to lash out. Just because you might not agree with something online, there is no need to disrespect anyone else. Remember: Don’t do anything on-line that you wouldn’t do in person.
DO make movies, music, photo boards, on-line groups, blogs, businesses, apps etc!
DON’T forget to put your phone away sometimes, talk face to face, & share what you make!
SHARE WHAT YOU MAKE! Tag on IG @gogirlscamp or FB @spotlightgirls. Don’t forget to #girlsmakemedia.
Go Girls! is not just a summer camp. It’s a movement. We are igniting a Compassion Revolution by putting girls center stage. At Go Girls!, rising first to sixth grade girls make plays, art, music, and media that we believe will change the world. Check out Go Girls Camp for the summer!
