Keeping your child safe online It's a different world for children growing up today. From the minute they're born, they're exposed to a digital world that will inevitably be their way of life – where plans are made via social networking sites, conversations are had over chat and text, and movies, games, music and TV shows are streamed at any time over the Internet. And while it's also a wonderful educational tool, it can be a place where tough lessons are learned if children have unlimited, unsupervised access to things they may not fully understand. The following list can help you keep your children safe when they use social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter, as well as mobile devices: Make sure the protection features of websites and software your children use are activated. There are tools available through your Internet Service Provider (ISP) to help you manage your children's online

experience (i.e. appropriate Websites, amount of time spent online, who can and cannot contact them). It might also include other security features, such as pop-up ad blockers. Get to know the online environments your children use and teach them how to deal with inappropriate material. Talk to them about the implications of posting inappropriate pictures, saying disparaging things about other people and anything else that could damage a reputation or ruin a friendship. Remind them that the Internet is a public space. Things they do and say now on social networking sites could have implications down the road when they're looking for summer employment (employers often search personal profiles for information about candidates). Stay in the know about the latest ways children are communicating and what they're up to when they're at friends' houses.

Keep an eye on the sites they're visiting by keeping the computer in a common area like the kitchen. Talk to other parents about their children's online privileges and what works for them. Educate them about the risks of webcam use with people you or your children don't know. Video that's broadcast over the Internet is permanently out there and can be saved by anyone for later viewing or distribution. If your computer has been hacked, another user could remotely control your webcam, so if you have an external camera, unplug it or cover your camera when it's not in use. If your child is using live text and voice chats for online games, warn them not to give personal information to a stranger. Be careful about what you post about your children or activities related to them like the location of their school, or where you or they are volunteering.

New director at helm of Esquimalt MFRC Jackie Carlé The Esquimalt Military Family Resource Centre’s (MFRC) search for a new executive director is complete. Jackie Carlé is the new executive director at the centre. She had been acting as interim executive director for the organization since June of 2017 and was selected as the successful candidate after a detailed hiring process. She has worked in support of military families for over two decades including eight years with Military Family Services, and has been with the Esquimalt MFRC since 2014 as the community engagement manager. She has over 20 years’ experience working in non-profit organizations such as Victoria’s Cool Aid Society and Ottawa’s The Mission Homeless Shelter. DAYS OPEN 7 EK! A WE

We chatted with MFRC Board Chair Samantha Krzywonos and the new Executive Director Jackie Carlé about the news. What was the reason behind the timing of the hiring? Krzywonos: I think there were a couple of factors in play for our board of directors. First, we had a long-time executive director here for many years and we wanted a chance to pause, think and make an informed decision on a new executive director. Second, we didn’t get a clear picture of what was happening with the MFRC governance review until the fall and we wanted that information before proceeding. Finally, we wanted to be able to gather meaningful input from staff and we used that

information to find the right person. What were the results of the governance review? Carlé: MFRC board members and executive directors met in late-September and voted on their top options for governance. The choices were to continue with the current non-profit structure, make some minor enhancements, or to adopt a partnership model. As of right now, the final decision is still under review but we know the options under consideration. What made Jackie the right person for the job? Krzywonos: There are a lot of great reasons that Jackie was the best fit. She has two decades of experience working for military families. She has worked with other nonprofit organizations. She has

experience with governance models and working with a board of directors. I also think she has a real good pulse on the staff. The hiring committee took the input of MFRC staff to heart and it helped to guide the hiring process. It has been a smooth transition because of the professionalism of staff. What does the future hold for the MFRC? Carlé: It is important people realize the vision for the organization is still intact. People can expect that same high level of programs and services. The Esquimalt MFRC has been around for nearly 30 years and I think the organization is a real forwardlooking organization. I think there is an opportunity for us to evolve and grow as an organization.

CFSA CFSA Summer “Learn To Sail” Program

Summer Program Questions?

Learn to Sail at the Canadian Forces Sailing Association! We offer courses for Youth and Adults of all ages, from beginner to advanced. CFSA is a wonderful place to learn to sail, with favourable winds and a protected harbour. Sharing a harbour with the Naval Dockyard, there are always exciting things happening in the bay. Our one and two week programs are a great way for kids, adults and families to enjoy their summer learning on the water!

Contact our Program Coordinator: Ryan Kaye Email: sailinginstructor@cfsaesq.ca CF Sailing School - Esquimalt on Facebook: @esquimaltsailing Registration is through PSP Recreation: Phone: 250-363-1009 In Person: 2610 Rosebank Rd (Colwood: Google Map!) Online: PSP Online - Esquimalt OR Naden Athletic Centre Kiosk Phone: 250-363-5677 CFSA Contact details: Training Officer: training@cfsaesq.ca Web: www.cfsaesq.ca Phone: 250-385-8873 (leave a msg please) Membership: membership@cfsaesq.ca

Our instructors are nationally certified through Sail Canada and trained in how to teach sailing, as well as first aid and boat rescue. We follow the Sail Canada CANSail curriculum of instruction. CANSail is designed to be a set of progressive learn to sail standards focused on providing sailors with a solid foundation of core skills. It allows sailors to learn and progress in any type of boat and consolidates key skills and solid experiences before adding complex skills. If a course isn’t running when you want to register for it, please contact us and we will see if there is an equivalent or way to get you sailing that week. You are not required to work for DND nor be a member of CFSA to take part in our summer Learn To Sail program, but you will probably find that you enjoy sailing so much that you will want to join and benefit from the perks of membership!

Did You Know? High School students with 100 or more hours of Sailing Instruction can apply for four high school credits! Ask us how!

Before and After Supervision We know that summer camps often cause conflicts with work, so we offer a way to drop your kids off early and stay a little while after class. Games and other on-shore activities keep kids busy as well as few small learning opportunities while hanging out with an instructor. If you are interested in this please email us a week before your course or talk to the Head Instructor on the first morning during registration

What to Expect Expect to go sailing on your first day and every day, rain or shine. The weather can be varied on the water so please come prepared with a hat, sunscreen, wind-breaker, change of clothes, towel, lunch, snacks and plenty of drinking water. Only close-toed shoes are allowed on the docks and in the boats. Safety (i.e. bike) helmets are required for all students under 16, unless a waiver is signed by the parent. We have a few helmets available but you are encouraged to send your child with their own that fits them and they are comfortable with. PFD’s are supplied, but feel free to bring your own. A Parent/Guardian must attend the first class to sign necessary waivers.
