iCanHelpline.org, Which Helps Schools Delete Cyberbullying, Announces Low-Cost Subscriptions for Social Media Help

Schools Signing Up by June 1 for the $300/Year Subscription Will Get
Help Service through June 2018; Discounts for Full-District Subscriptions

SEATTLE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#cyberbullying–The nonprofit Net Safety Collaborative, creator of the U.S.’s first
social media helpline for schools, has launched a new subscription
service for schools and districts nationwide. Schools can now sign up
for the 2017-’18 school year at the low rate of $300/year per school
(discounts available to districts subscribing for all their schools). As
an “early bird” bonus, schools and districts signing up by this June 1
will receive social media help for the rest of this year as well as the
full 2017-’18 school year—an extra 4 months.

What schools get for their $300:

  • Toll-free and email access to help when social media incidents
    happen
  • Research-based social media advice for smart, restorative incident
    response
  • Help with navigating apps, reporting abuse and working with students
    to resolve cyberbullying problems in social media
  • Assistance in getting abusive content deleted through the helpline’s
    contacts at Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, Kik, Tumblr and other
    services.

“Our 2015-’16 pilot showed that we’re meeting a long-standing need of
schools on the intervention side of the cyberbullying issue: we help get
harmful content deleted,” said TNSC Executive Director and helpline
founder Anne Collier. “The helpline also strengthens prevention by
growing communication, social media competency and restorative responses
in school communities.”

Upon signup, school or district personnel can call iCanHelpline
toll-free on school days at (855) 997-0409 or email anytime via
help[at]icanhelpline.org. Links to emergency and specialized help
services and school social media resources are available to everyone,
24/7, at icanhelpline.org by clicking on “Resources” on the home page.
The service is made possible through TNSC’s partnerships with social
media services. For more, click to http://icanhelpline.org.
