“In some ways, social media can be a really powerful tool for girls to expressive themselves and for advocating for change, so we know the power of this tool, but they also need to understand the challenges that exist and the dangers quite frankly,” Suzanne Parker, executive director of Girls Inc. of the Valley, said.

The Holyoke-based organization has to balance teaching girls ways to empower themselves, while also avoiding the dangers of social media, like to never trust someone they meet online.
