THE PROGRAM FOR CHILD-SAFE WEB BROWSING

Young people, from kid to tween to teen, have active minds! Hurray! But when those active minds use the Internet, protection is needed.

weNetOK makes the Internet available on your terms — safely, at sites you approve.

Ideal for homework, skill-building games, and more in classrooms, youth centers, homes, and churches.

Our Story

weNetOK was created to solve a problem at the St. Francis House Youth Center in Odell, Oregon. Now it is available to solve this problem in classrooms, youth centers, and homes.

St. Francis House offers hospitality to 25-50 young people, ages 4 to 15, on weekday afternoons and Saturday mornings. There are seven computers in the center and the computers are a popular attraction; the young people like to surf the Internet.

A pressing problem was that some of these young people were browsing inappropriate websites. The volunteer staff spent much of their attention looking over kids’ shoulders to assure that the content was OK. Inevitably, disagreements arose about what was appropriate content. Volunteers disliked the “police” role. Young people disliked having their judgment questioned. Volunteer time was being taken away from other activities, taking attention away from the kids who weren’t using the computers.

We tried filters, but there were always websites that could slip through the filters. We looked at some other ”approved-list” Internet browsers, but they didn’t fit our need for several reasons.

weNetOK solved the problem.
