Who we've helped

What others are saying

“You don’t have to be tech savvy for the Resource Portal. It’s the best source for simplifying social media platforms and trends so you’re always ahead of the game — whether you know how to navigate a phone or not! I was able to have positive, open conversations with my daughter about emerging trends and apps.”

“The Resource Portal is on the forefront of ed tech. It’s like the fun Cliff Notes of social media. The Social Institute’s positive approach to empower students instead of scaring them is innovative and fresh for parents. I’ve not seen anything that compares to it. Parents will especially appreciate the Huddles, which offer parenting tips for social media situations students face daily, yet parents never would have considered.”

“Our students and parents have longed for a sustained message about how to connect conversations, use, and education about technology and social media. We feel our commitment to community health must include a systemic educational approach to understanding the potential positive impact “social” can bring, and we’re looking forward to offering this innovative tool to our school’s entire parent community.”
