LONDON, ON / ACCESSWIRE / January 30, 2020 / Anti Internet Child Exploitation Team Council (AICET Council) has been created by the federal Canadian charity Internet Sense First. Why? The online vulnerabilities of our children have increased by 10,000% in the past few years because of the Internet* and actions of unknowns, knowns, and our children. We impress upon everyone globally, that catching up to the digital age is a necessity for the sake of our children, in every country of the world.

AICET is a group of specialists actively responding to the explosive growth of child exploitation online. AICET speakers are donating their time, are dedicated to the safety of children online, and simply request expenses to be paid. A donation to Internet Sense First in Canada, or a charity with like goals in another country where we present, is all that is suggested for remuneration.

Not only are children today victimized by unknown predators but, tragically, their peers as well. They can include children as young as eleven years of age and younger, who have been socialized by the widespread and easy availability of pornography online. Child-on-child sexual assault has become a major concern, in addition to multiple other issues.

AICET details and speaker bios are outlined in the AICET brochure below. This news release is being sent in preparation for Safer Internet Day February 11, 2020. AICET has already been asked to present in the Cayman Islands and throughout the Caribbean, prior to official announcement occurring.

AICET presentations are based on the user-friendly Theory of Digital Supervision developed by Charlene Doak-Gebauer, the Founder and Chair of AICET Council. Speakers in AICET contribute through their individual specialties as indicated in the brochure attached.

We believe it is time for Canada to realize the necessity of parental guidance using Digital Supervision. AICET Council has been created and ready to present across Canada and globally.

ANTI INTERNET CHILD EXPLOITATION TEAM

EMPHASIZING

SOLIDARITY FOR THE SAFETY OF CHILDREN

WITHOUT BORDERS

AICET Council Details

We are a group of specialists actively responding to the explosive growth of child exploitation online. Not only are children today victimized by unknown predators but, tragically, their peers as well. They can include children as young as eleven years of age, who have been socialized by the widespread and easy availability of pornography online. Upon being asked to be a part of AICET Council, we gave a resounding “yes”. Our children urgently need our help on a global basis.

Our presentations are based on the Theory of Digital Supervision developed by Charlene Doak-Gebauer, the Founder and Chair of AICET Council. We contribute through our individual specialties which include: expertise in education, computer science/network management in education, trauma identification/treatment for child sexual assault, counselling services, media education, legal implications, approach to pornography with children, law enforcement, and motivational support for the hope segment of Digital Supervision. The Theory of Digital Supervision is divided into three parts - awareness, method, and hope. It was developed by Charlene to be a user-friendly approach to online child protection.

We believe in the safety of families and children online to the extent, we are donating our time. We request that travel expenses be covered. If remuneration is offered, we usually request that the funds be donated to a local charity within the hosting community with goals similar to ours, in the nation that is engaging us. In Canada, we choose the Federal Canadian Charity Internet Sense First, which provides funding for victims of Internet child exploitation and education for parents, caregivers, and professionals about Digital Supervision.

Please contact our Chair, Charlene Doak-Gebauer, to book a presentation or conference. Presentations can be half-day or full-day. Three to five speakers will be selected for presentations, based on location of venue, travel considerations, and contractual requirements. AICET Council provides the presentations; venues do all arrangements, bookings, venue rentals, ticket sales, and other arrangement details. Call 01-519-854-1249 or email, .

All parents, grandparents, caregivers, professionals, and government leaders are strongly encouraged to experience presentations. We have advice, information and some answers to online child protection, that so many people are asking for and need. NB Attendees at conferences are eligible for a Certificate of Completion for the Theory of Digital Supervision training for online child protection, provided it is a full-day conference to allow for full Digital Supervision training.
