The project Young Leaders engages 20 young people with a special interest in InteOkejs preventative measures against bullying and harassment on the internet. The team of youth will develop strategies based on the core issues of the program to be spread in their own respective schools, clubs & networks.
The youth receive training on the laws and regulations that apply online, they learn various facilitation techniques and how they can initiate a project in their school / association / or club. They also participate in various exercises and workshops needed to enable them to work and develop content delivery strategies independently.
Through these efforts, the Young leaders for InteOkej will create opportunities for youth in their respective environments to immerse themselves in InteOkejs core issues supporting preventative measures against cyberbullying in wider circles. Work will begin during summer 2015 and continue the fall semester.
Youth Leaders is a three year initiative. Funding granted for year one by King Gustaf V:s 90 yearfund (Stiftelsen Konung Gustaf V:s 90-årsfond)
