I think you need to work closely with the youngster's parent(s). SVLUG is
here for anyone. But you and the parents may want to limit access to
specific sites for a few years.

BTW Drew, keep up the good work. Linux has the power to uplift young folks.
More needs to be done at the grass roots level to bring Linux to them.
Today, anyone who can get connected to the internet can work with Linux and
the open source community to educate themselves, providing a path to a good
life. It's a powerful side effect of open source computing.
