The Childnet Digital Leaders Programme is a youth leadership training programme empowering young people to educate their peers about online safety.

We are the only online safety charity in the UK delivering an online peer to peer programme that directly helps schools to embed online safety. Once on board, groups of Digital Leaders complete training through an engaging, informative and fun online platform, working through e-learning modules to equip them with the skills to become peer mentors in their schools, and help keep others safe online. When they are qualified, Digital Leaders are encouraged to advocate for online safety in their schools and communities by running offline and online activities, for which they will be awarded additional team achievement badges and points.

“The school’s work to keep pupils safe is exemplified by the ‘Digital Leaders’, pupils who are well prepared to train their peers on internet safety. During the inspection, ‘Digital Leaders’ were teaching Year 7 pupils about the dangers of social media. Year 7 pupils then carried out research and presented projects with enthusiasm and deep understanding.”
