We invite you to get connected with the SHIELD Online Community!

The SHIELD Online Community is a registration-only online mentoring platform where youth, parents, and families meet via any device.


Youth participants will have the opportunity to interact with their mentors and other youth members on the online mentoring platform. Mentors will post at least one activity per week for youth to watch interactive videos and download activity sheets. The goal is to get youth participants thinking about their individual potential, interacting with peers, and engaging in group activities online.


Parents/Guardians/Caregivers are strongly encouraged to participate with their youth in the SHIELD Online Community. By signing up as a registered user on the SHIELD Online Community, families may view the posted activities and comment in the online forum/comments section.
