Teen Discord Server FAQ
What is Discord?
Discord is a free app that allows users to communicate via text, voice, or video in real-time, and is available as a mobile app, a PC program, or on any web browser.
Users can join “servers” where they can communicate through text in a “text channel” or through video or voice chat through “voice channels.”
It was initially marketed as a communications platform for people who play video games but now has grown to become its own social media-like digital hang-out platform.
Is Discord safe?
Much like any other social media platform, Discord as a program is about as safe as it can be set. There is always a risk when using anything on the internet, but Discord has several safety settings in the platform, including content and privacy filters, that ensure users can use the platform safely.
Generally, it’s suggested to use the platform to communicate with people that your teens already know offline and to join servers that you trust.
How is the Teen Lounge using Discord?
The PLJCS Teen Discord server is using Discord as a digital hang-0ut space and to provide virtual programming for teens in a curated and well-moderated virtual space.
The PLJCS Teen Discord server is not public. It is only available to those who fill out our application form and agree to conduct themselves appropriately.
Under Discord’s Terms of Service, all users must be “13 years of age and the minimum age of digital consent in your country,” so parents/guardians must register their children under their accounts and be under their supervision when they are on the server.
