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.
