How young people are taking the lead

The Childnet Digital Leaders Programme offers young people exciting youth leadership opportunities alongside a proactive online community, structured training and ongoing support from Childnet’s expert team. The programme gives young people the possibility to have impact in their school’s approach to online safety education. Many of our Digital Leaders go above and beyond and we love to hear stories of the creative ways they are sharing their online safety knowledge and using the skills they have gained from the programme.

Here are some impressive examples of Digital Leaders making a huge impact in their local and wider communities:

“The programme has raised the profile of online safety with the children involved and they are very eager to share what they have learnt with their peers and the school as a whole. We are hoping to use our next sessions to create information posters, plan assemblies and give our digital leaders previews of what we will be teaching in our computer lessons so they can assist us within the classroom.”
