Empowering individuals through digital intelligence education

The time to act is now

Our world is increasingly reliant on technology and the use of digital devices. We struggle every day to have control over our digital lives and make informed, responsible choices. Own Your Data works to fill the knowledge gap, advocating for a digitally intelligent global community. We believe every person should have the ability and resources to protect themselves online.

We envision a world where every person has the skills to critically evaluate their digital presence while, and not instead of, benefiting from the perks of the many advancements in our digital world.

Why digital intelligence

Our digital lives are no longer sequestered to digital devices, they impact every aspect of our physical world.

As such, we tackle all crucial areas of digital literacy:

  • Data Rights
  • Cybersecurity
  • Online Ethics
  • Effective Communication
  • Technology Proficiency

Digital intelligence is imperative in creating a moral, transparent and consensual global future.

We equip every individual with the tools they need to live a safe, protected and informed digital life.

Our resources

Our initiative, objective, plan

We aim to be the capacity builders and multipliers in the digital intelligence movement by focusing on the training of trainers. Through the implementation of curricula and advanced training programs for those who teach digital intelligence skills, we have set out to greatly expand our reach and impact.

Our efforts are focused on mobilizing adults and those with influence while inspiring a network of youth volunteers to become a valuable resource for their classmates and peers.

We believe by investing in the enhancement of our educators, trainers and peer experts we invest in our combined global future.

Timeline and goals

We strive to inspire a systemic change in digital intelligence education. Starting with activation on a local level and expanding outwards, we are calling on communities to realize the importance and urgency of digital intelligence education and the exponential positive impact it can have.

Implementing these training programs in local school systems, after school programs and summer compliments are the first steps in this transformation. Through measured success we can continue to expand our mission to corporations and governments while measuring impact on a global scale.
