Last month, Mitchell Youth Services together with Mitchell Youth Council launched an innovative campaign Cyber Tattoo – It’s There For Life. The campaign was created to generate awareness for online safety and assist young people to be respectful and responsible online.
At the launch, Danielle Green MP, Mayor Rodney Parker, CEO Rebecca McKenzie and Councillors were present at Wallan Secondary College to provide support to our youth councillors and the work that they have achieved (see picture below).
Over the past five months Mitchell Youth Council with support from Mitchell Shire Youth Coordinator Buffy Leadbeater have spent hours researching, studying and investigating ideas to develop posters, merchandise, information brochures and a significant social media platform to address the issue of Cyber Bullying and online safety for young people.
The unified voice of Mitchell Youth Council, supported by Mitchell Shire Council, aims to build stronger understanding of how to be ‘Cyber Savvy’ and the risks associated with social media and online technology. The Youth Council is already receiving excellent results from young people through the delivery of this program with multiple ‘likes’ on the Cyber Tattoo Facebook Page.
For further information about the campaign, contact Youth Services on 5734 6200 or Facebook/CyberTattoo.ItsThereForLife.
