Jo Phillips and Joe Whitbread: The Jo(e)s
A Lasting Impact
Jo and Joe hold the following values:
We will listen to the kids. Even if it’s a 56 minute conversation about Fortnite.
We will value what the kids tell us. We won’t tell them their experiences aren’t real or valid.
We will speak on behalf of the kids, to adults. We won’t protect adults from the words the kids have given us, and we won’t give adults a pass on their online behaviour or the impact they have on their kids.
We will amplify the voices of kids.
We will talk about social media safety, mental health, and digital responsibility.
Who We Are
Jo loves to listen to the stories of kids and work with them to find solutions to their ideas, and their challenges. With a degree in Psychology focused on motivation and personality, and a minor in Sociology from the University of Calgary, she is able to connect the dots for parents and kids in a healthy, fun, way.
Joe started his career in broadcast journalism, and took his first gig as an on-air personality in Grande Prairie shortly after graduating from SAIT. As a public speaker, professional emcee, PA announcer, and voice over artist, he’s hosted thousands of events in his 25+ year career in the public. He gets excited about helping kids enhance their online opportunity! Like, really excited.
