|Who runs it?
The Circle of Friends Penpal Club is sponsored by A Girl's World Online Clubhouse (AGW).
Both AGW and our Penpal Club have received extensive media coverage and recommendations, including Discovery Channel's Assignment: Discovery feature, which included our Penpal Club in its segment on internet safety.
Endorsements include publications such as USA Today, the New York Times, Parents Magazine, and the major consumer reporting magazine, as well as various television news outlets including: Channel 8 San Diego, Radio Disney: Kid Talk With Dr. Mary.
AGW also received awards and recommendations from the BBC Internet Guide, Ask Jeeves for Kids, Yahooligans: Cool Award, Berit's Best Sites for Children, the Cornerstone Foundation Award for "Excellence in Youth Services", Family Planet: Best of the Web, the Lycos Information Guide, and the Exploratorium.
Zealous about internet safety and privacy for the girls who participate in their site, AGW was proud to be a presenter, along with Nickelodeon, Fox and Disney at the Federal Trade Commission's "Kids' Privacy Compliance Training for Web site Operators" workshop, November 2000.
