SID Ambassador Leadership Award
Our Safer Internet Day Ambassador Programme is a peer-to-peer youth programme that gives students an opportunity to start an online safety campaign in their own school.
The Ambassador Programme empowers students by providing them with opportunities to develop leadership, human-relations, team-building and communication skills. Students make a commitment to lead by example, demonstrate respect and responsibility, and engage in community service.
It’s aims are:
- To encourage and support young people to address internet safety issues such as cyberbullying and create a better internet for all.
- To train young people to lead effective awareness-raising campaigns in their clubs, schools, and communities.
- To involve as many people across schools, groups, communities in Ireland to celebrate Safer Internet Day, 5th Feb 2019.
Safer Internet Day Ambassador Values:
