Technology Organization Against Destructive Deeds
TOADD is a 501c3 non-profit organization whose mission is to education the youth about using technology responsibly. Since 2010 TOADD has made some tremendous strides. We've reached over 1.5M people with our message, collected over 250,000 pledges to use technology responsibly, visited over 60 elementary, middle and high schools and a Georgia State Senate recognized week "Text With Respect Week" July 21-27. Although this is good, many more kids have access to technology and haven't heard the message. This means there are many more lives to save.
TOADD is the first and only to offer a Pre-Cell Phone program which gives mobile technology awareness to elementary students. By age 8 most kids have a mobile device. TOADD tackles issues such as texting and driving, sexing and cyberbullying from as early as the 3rd grade. TOADD strongly feels that early awareness, intervention and education is the only way to change minds, save lives and make a REAL difference. TOADD philosophy is very unique and the leader of it kind when it compares to all other organizations educating the youth about using technology responsibly.
TOADD also offers the Growing Up Mobile program for middle school students. Technology is a very important part of our everyday lives, especially with this age group and is meant to help us, not harm us. TOADD's newest eSports Will program is introducing high school students to Varsity eSports and STEAM education, as well as opportunities in collegiate, semi-pro and professional opportunities. TOADD offers fun, relevant and innovative awareness and educational activities and events.
TOADD's made some incredible updates. The first update is our name, formally Texting Organization Against Distracted Driving, now Technology Organization Against Destrctive Deeds, whooo, that's a mouthful. Right? So we'll just stick to TOADD. The name changed but the mission is the same, to save lives!
Other updates are in our TOADD programming. We had the honor and pleasure of partnering with Emory University's Public Health department for a full program evaluation. The program was given excellent marks and innovative suggestion. We've incorporated the findings and accelerated our presentations and learning experience with more interactive features. TOADD, also added a new community partner, the High School eSports League.
