the organisation

We are PROJECT ROCKIT: Australia’s youth-driven movement against bullying, hate and prejudice. Over the past 11 years we’ve delivered high impact face-to-face workshops to over 250,000 young people across the country and have earned the reputation in schools as the ‘student-favourite’ in anti-(cyber)bullying programs.

Earlier this year we launched our highly anticipated online curriculum, PROJECT ROCKIT Online, which has taken our Victorian-based organisation national. We’ve also launched Season One of PROJECT ROCKIT TV, an online video series powered by Google that provides real talk on the tough topics young people care about.

We’re the go-to anti-bullying and cybersafety partner of Telstra, Google, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Most importantly though, we’re a small team of diverse, driven and passionate people relentlessly committed to making school a safer space for all young people in Australia.
