 What is the Connect Safely Programme?

The Connect Safely Programme promotes safer use of digital resources, equipping young people with the skills to safely benefit from being online, while also empowering young people to safely participate in their online communities as positive digital citizens.

The programme includes topics such as:

  • Cyberbullying
  • Screen Time and Well Being
  • Privacy Settings
  • Digital Citizenship, Fake News and Hate Speech
  • Gaming/Gambling
  • Online Relationships
  • Sexting

It will be made available to the Irish Youth Sector and is suitable for young people aged 12-18 years. It was designed by staff, volunteers and young people within Foróige with an external pilot taking place before the summer.
