The Telstra Foundation is partnering with PROJECT ROCKIT to take their anti-bullying and youth leadership program online. Rosie, PROJECT ROCKIT cofounder, has just returned from a whirlwind trip to what is often described as ‘Disneyland for Grown-ups’ – Facebook’s Global Headquarters in Menlo Park, California.
My name is Rosie Thomas and I’m cofounder of PROJECT ROCKIT, Australia’s biggest youth-driven movement against (cyber)bullying. Since 2006, we’ve been empowering young people to stand up and lead change by tackling bullying and building real leadership in school communities.
At PROJECT ROCKIT we believe in a world where respect and kindness thrive over bullying, hate and prejudice and all young people are free to realise their potential.
We’re super excited to be partnering with the Telstra Foundation to take our anti-bullying & leadership programs online with the creation of our Digital Classroom. As well as providing innovative education for the classroom, we’re also developing a pretty sweet app so that all young people have access to totally cool and credible anti-bullying and leadership development, no matter where they are!
