MySecureKid is a global movement that educates, inspires and promotes online safety awareness for parents, educators and children.
Our goal is to create a safe environment for children online, and fight against cyberbullying, human trafficking and adolescent suicide.
In more practical terms, it is our mission is to foster – through education and mentorship– the exchange of knowledge, expertise, resources and best practices between key online safety stakeholders, including industry, in order to increase access to high-quality content for parents, educators, children and young people in underserved communities.
The concept of Mysecurekid started in 2010 with our founder, Ms. Quiana Gainey.
Using her expertise in cybersecurity, she began to speak about cyber safety for kids to both kids and their parents at various events and workshops in the DMV area.
Mysecurekid became an official 501(c)3 non- profit in 2018. Our focus is on cybersecurity for kids. Our approach is to educate kids, parents, and educators on best practices to to provide to up-to- date resources. We will continue to speak around the area as well as partner with local organizations and schools to sponsor informative events.
Mysecurekid is the future bridge builder whose mission is to promote diversity and inclusion in the field of cybersecurity, healthcare and technology through education, training, financial literacy, coaching, entrepreneurship and mentorship. We will provide positive role models and host training, workshops and activities to help people feel confident in themselves to achieve their dreams.
We Have Moved!
We are excited to announce that we have moved to a new neighborhood!
The Nauck community is a roughly triangular area lying to the south of Columbia Pike and north of Shirlington, bound on South 16th Road to the north, Walter Reed Drive to the west, and Four Mile Run to the south, and it straddles Glebe Road to the East where the Army-Navy Country Club forms eastern extremity. It is recognized as one of Arlington County's oldest African American neighborhoods, tracing its existence to 1844 when Sarah and Levi Jones established their home. Over the years, many residents labored and contributed to its growth. Despite these obstacles, many of its residents persevered and fought for their right to experience a good life despite slavery and Jim Crow laws.
Our goal in moving into the neighborhood is to preserve and to live out the dreams of the pioneers of Nauck/Green Valley who created a bridge for the next generation.
