Safe on Social Youth Voice
They're the voices the world needs to hear. And now, they have the platform to be heard.
Safe on Social Media's Youth Voice is a group of young people who are passionate about promoting safe and responsible social media use. Formed in 2020 and formalised in 2021, we created our Youth Voice to provide a platform for youth voices to be heard on issues related to everything social media from cyberbullying, privacy, emerging threats to more positive ways to engage with social media. The Youth Voice members are remunerated to develop resources and strategies to educate young people on safe social media practices. It's their world in their words.
The time to stand up and listen has never been more important. That time is now.
I’m currently in Year 12 and love studying all things cultural and sociological. What drove me to become a part of the Safe on Social team was contributing to fostering a more equal and safe online world and the opportunity to educate Australians to promote a healthy relationship with the internet. My skills regarding managing cyber/creative burnout and acknowledging and responding to online criticism and hate will positively impact readers and the community.
