New additions have been made to the COVID-19 resources on ICE.gov for Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) stakeholders.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) knows that providing children, teens, parents and teachers with information regarding the potential dangers of online environments and how to stay safe online can help prevent many instances of child exploitation. HSI has partnered with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children’s NetSmartz and the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Forces to develop Project iGuardian.
Project iGuardian is focused on keeping children and teens safe from online predators through robust education and awareness. The project is an outreach effort to share information about the dangers of online environments, how to stay safe online and how to report abuse and suspicious activity. Project iGuardian helps kids, teens and parents be smarter about online safety and stay safe from online predators.
