Safer Internet Day Ambassador Programme
An important aspect of anti-bullying prevention and internet safety in schools is the active involvement of students in building a positive school climate.
As a part of our Safer Internet Day campaign, Webwise is reaching out to post-primary students and encouraging and supporting them to address the issue of cyberbullying and internet safety by leading awareness-raising campaigns in their clubs, schools, and communities.
We would love you to get involved!
Anyone can nominate a Safer Internet Day (SID) Ambassador, you can even nominate yourself! We are looking for young people who have the passion to lead a campaign in their school.
In 2019, 130 students from around Ireland gathered together for the Safer Internet Day (SID) Training Ambassador Programme in Google HQ in Dublin.
Webwise provided online (webinars) and offline training to the youth ambassadors to empower them to lead safer internet campaigns in their schools. This is a great opportunity to work with students from across Ireland and help create a positive environment in schools and communities.
Safer Internet Day Ambassadors are teenagers who want to do something about cyberbullying or another internet safety issue.
They don’t need any special expertise or experience, just a commitment to do something positive.
We would love to hear from teenagers who have previous experience of leading internet safety/cyber-bullying or other positive campaigns in your schools/community or youth group.
Why Join the Safer Internet Day Ambassador Programme?
Over 145,000 people joined us in celebrating Safer Internet Day across Ireland in 2019. Help us make Safer Internet Day 2020 an even bigger success by becoming a Safer Internet Day Ambassador.
