How does PROJECT ROCKIT Online work?

“PROJECT ROCKIT believe every young person deserves engaging and inspiring cyber-bullying resources, no matter where they are located.” – Chloe Eckert, Online Learning Manager

PROJECT ROCKIT is Australia’s first and biggest youth-driven movement against bullying, hate and prejudice and, for the last 12 years, we’ve been running high impact, evidence-based workshops in schools that help young people stand up to (cyber)bullying instead of standing by. We’ve now worked with over 250,000 young people, sit on the Government’s eSafety committee and are the go-to-youth cyber safety partner of Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Google.

Bullying (online and offline) remains a massive issue affecting young people in
Australian schools. Experiences of school bullying have been linked with increased risks of criminal behaviour, suicidal ideation, poorer physical health and early school leaving. Bullying robs young people of potential and opportunities at school. Now, as technology continues to leap ahead, schools are falling behind. With the rapid
growth of social media, online issues such as cyber safety and sexting are
traditionally hard for teachers to discuss with students. What’s really missing from the equation is a youth perspective, which brings credibility and a genuine understanding of what it means to be a young person in an ever-changing digital world. PROJECT ROCKIT Online fills this gap in education and comes with an extensive teacher resource guide packed full of follow up questions, a lesson plan to unpack the workshops with students, classroom activities and take home resources/tips for parents and students.

PROJECT ROCKIT believes that ALL young people should have access to impactful and inspiring anti-bullying resources no matter their location. The online program was externally evaluated by the University of New South Wales and provides educators with livetime data reporting. Before completing the program, only 49% of young people felt confident enough to challenge (cyber)bullying, but after the program, 96% of young people felt confident enough to stand up.

Impact & scalability

HundrED Academy Reviews
Love the idea of students putting together content to help tackle an area that teachers and other adults have tried to address and tackle, but let's be honest without much success.
This is a great tool for digital wellbeing. Their message is clear, their videos are engaging, and the fact that they include youth interviews is powerful.
