Frederick, MD (PRWEB) May 07, 2013
The Business Factory of Frederick is partnering with Kids Are Heroes, Inc., to bring a seminar on reputation management for social media appealing especially to young adults in May.
Kids Are Heroes, Inc., a non-profit organization empowering children to become leaders through volunteering, is partnering with the Business Factory to bring this important topic to Frederick and raise funds for the organization’s mission. Gabe O’Neill is a co-founder of the organization along with his daughter Mary Margaret. O’Neill speaks publicly in the region about the benefits of youth volunteering, and also about preventing young adults from sabotaging their reputations through social media.
O’Neill will lead the educational presentation, entitled Make or Break Your Future with Social Media. The session will be offered at the Factory on Wednesday, May 15 for tweens in grades 8 through 12 from 6:30 to 7:30 pm. “We want to teach young adults how to properly use the various social media outlets, and prevent them from sabotaging their reputations through social media,” O’Neill said.
Kids Are Heroes is an example of the power of social media. Founded in 2008, KAH is now an international organization expanding into thirteen countries. Kids Are Heroes has over 70,000 followers on Twitter, and has been utilizing social media since its inception.
“Kids Are Heroes was born when my daughter Mary Margaret asked me to create a website so she could help animals,” said O’Neill. “We foster an environment where it is second nature for kids to volunteer. We believe all kids, regardless of socioeconomic status, can make a powerful impact on others, and we know how much it benefits those who are involved.”
Enrollment for the class is $15, and the participant must be accompanied by a parent/guardian. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Kids Are Heroes, Inc.
