What is the role?

In this role you will collaborate with young people from across the UK making a difference in how online safety is talked about and taught at all levels.

The board regularly meet online to chat as a group about online safety issues affecting young people, and you will actively contribute to the resources we create.

Childnet will also offer you various opportunities throughout the year, including a chance to represent Childnet nationally, leading the way in speaking out about important online issues.

  • Want to celebrate the opportunities being online has to offer,
  • Want to champion change that can make a real difference to young people’s online experiences
