PROJECT ROCKIT Digital Ambassadors unites students across Australian schools to participate in a national movement of change against (cyber)bullying, that is led by young people for young people.

The program provides youth-driven training of young people focussed on building peer networks to create supportive online communities.

What's it about?

A Digital Ambassador is a powerful source of leadership in the online world. Through support and allyship, they make every effort to choose kindness. They utilise strategies to safely connect and tackle online hate. Digital Ambassadors recognise their power in the online world and use that power for good. They use their unique strengths to stand up, challenge the status quo and reclaim technology.

How does it work?

Stage 1: Empowering events

Students are invited to a series of high-energy workshops in metropolitan and regional communities across Australia. Through PROJECT ROCKIT's strengths-based approach, each workshop tackles (cyber)bullying, builds empathy and grows young people to be Digital Ambassadors with tangible skills to lead a positive online world, starting in their own community. The workshops will bring together students from different schools to grow a generation of digital ambassadors for school and wider online communities, who are equipped with the empathy and skills to tackle online hate and lead a better, kinder digital world.

Stage 2: Online Action Hub

PROJECT ROCKIT Digital Ambassadors then have access to the online Action Hub, providing ongoing education, tools and resources to reinforce core messages, extend learning and spark peer-led action within the school for navigating the online world. The online Action Hub is packaged into a 4-week learning program, which reinforces the positive event experience into lasting change that can be led by young people. Through the hub, educators and Digital Ambassadors plug into a collective, youth-designed toolkit that gives them everything they need to create social change in their own school communities.

Stage 3: Join the movement

Digital Ambassadors are equipped to 'rock it' in the online world. With social leadership skills, new perspectives, a bucketload of empathy and a community of peers equally committed to change, Digital Ambassadors are ready and committed to use their online power for good. This is more than just a one-off school workshop. You will be plugging into a powerful movement of over 300,000 other young people who are united, prepared and ready to stand up to bullying - on and offline. Together we navigate the risks and rewards of challenging (cyber)bullying with credible strategies to shut down online hate.
