“iLAND5 was a choice I made for my own son. After losing something as precious as a child I would not ever risk the child I have left to something where I have the least bit of doubt about their safety.”
The Development and Operations Team was assembled out of necessity driven by Deborah and Steven Schechner, the founders. They recruited individuals from a variety of disciplines to address one compelling issue: how do we keep our children safer on the internet? Each team member brings a unique perspective and skill set to the task: create an internet environment free of predators and exciting for kids. This group of parents, business owners, educators, web designers, programmers and mental health providers is committed to delivering a secure and enriching web experience.
SafeWave™ was created in response to a serious and growing problem: children being harassed, bullied, propositioned and exploited while using the Internet. In mid 2007, SafeWave™ began the development of a FREE safer, enriching Internet experience for children age 5 through 18. The mission core of SafeWave is iLAND5 -- a secure, parent-trusted online network that brings a brand new level of security, identity and enrichment to online social networking.
SafeWave™ is rooted in community involvement and free use. Community includes parents, teachers, family members, school administrators, law enforcement and others who share and support our mission.
