Empowering Smart Choices in a Digital World

Who we are

Smart GEN Society (SGS) is an Omaha-based nonprofit operating to empower smart choices in a digital world. Founded by Amie Konwinski, military veteran, computer engineer, and mother of five, SGS is the leading organization in the region aimed at bringing preventative and proactive measures into our communities to offset the negative implications of a society immersed in technologies with a lack of resources and education to safely manage them.

What we do

Our professional staff and trained facilitators seek to protect and empower today's students and families to think critically about their digital usage, while maintaining their privacy and safety, and protecting their social, emotional, and mental well-being. SGS’s goal is to reduce digital-based anxieties, prevent peer and predator exploitation, and ensure online safety and privacy.

How we do it

SGS serves predominately K-12 youth and their families, in partnership with participating public and private schools. We work to provide a triangular system of support around today’s youth through proven effective in-school workshops and seminars, classroom curriculum, and digital resources. With the support of the UNMC Munroe-Meyer Institute, SGS workshops are driven by our on-going social and digital media research which allow us to tailor workshop content to meet the immediate needs of our students and families.
