All teachers, and related staff, who complete the program will receive a summative infographic containing key learnings and a participation certificate.

The YeS Project – Guided Walkthrough

Guided walkthrough sessions are offered for all teachers interested in implementing our first-of-its-kind digital and social health program.

The YeS Project is a youth focused initiative designed to inspire, ignite and enable positive change within digital spaces for the collective good. It encourages young people, aged 14-17 years, to act as positive leaders and supportive friends in all their social spaces, especially online. The YeS Project aims to help students learn about their digital communities, and to transform them.

The one-hour overview for teachers of the new resource will:

  • Review supporting material to explain the research that underpins the Project
  • Provide an overview of research that aims to understand young people’s digital cultures
  • Give advice on how the Project links with Australian Curriculum and programs for Years 9 and 10 (including respectful relationships)
  • Discuss ways of fitting The YeS Project into your school or setting
  • Recommend approaches for planning and facilitating the Project.

To participate in one of The YeS Project sessions, choose one of the following sessions to register your attendance.
