Above The Fray is a first of its kind program, proactively addressing the numerous issues young people face online, like sexting, social media, cyberbullying, gaming, and more. Our goal is to educate parents and teachers about what life is really like online for young people, and to give adults the tools they need to begin meaningful dialogues at home and at school. Our tangible, grounded, and easy to understand program is based largely on the startling findings from our Above The Fray youth focus groups, led by PhD Shawna Malvini Redden. We teach parents what it’s truly like for young people right now in the cyber trenches; how it’s affecting their minds and bodies. And we offer real solutions to parents that will help keep children safe.



Book Above The Fray to speak at your next school, community, corporate, or church event.

It's Our Passion

Can you imagine what life would have been like if social media had existed when you were in school?


In addition to our in-person presentations, Above The Fray has developed additional tools to empower responsible and safe social media users.
The Digital Lives of Young People

If you're a parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, caregiver, coach, pastor, principal, counselor, or teacher, this is something you must read. I highly encourage you to download the report, read what kids are experiencing online, and dedicate to making these topics a core part of the conversations you're having with the young people in your life.
