This project uses ‘peer education’ model to inform and resource young people from newly arrived and refugee backgrounds and their parents/guardians about safe internet and mobile phone use. The project is delivered by CMY in the City of Ballarat.
This six-month project runs from December 2012 to June 2013 and has five components:
Peer Educator training
You will receive two training sessions on leadership, teamwork, facilitation, teaching and learning principles and cybersafety. There will also be delivery practice sessions.
Education sessions for young people
Peer Educators will plan and deliver between 2-3 information and education sessions in total. Support will be provided to help build your confidence if needed.
Education sessions for parents / guardians
Sessions will also be delivered to parents/guardians of young participants. These sessions will be a great way of promoting positive relationships between parents/guardians and young people.
Planning and debriefing sessions
All Peer Educators will need to attend regular meetings to plan their sessions and debrief about previous sessions. Some sessions may have guest speakers. The webWise Project Officer will support Peer Educators with all aspects of the role during the life of the project.
Final evaluation session
A final session will be held to evaluate the success of the project.
