Are you a Digital Grassroots Ambassadors Program alumni interested in using the Internet as a tool for social good and development? We invite you to step forward for the community edition of our program, the Digital Grassroots Ambassadors Program Cohort 6.
The key objective of this edition is to equip our alumni to take on the role of digital literacy trainers, imparting crucial insights on Internet governance and digital rights to 15-20 young individuals (14-29 years old) from their local communities. This initiative is part of our ongoing commitment to fostering proactive youth participation in Internet Governance and endorsing Internet Literacy as an indispensable instrument for realizing Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 4, 5, 10, 16, and 17.
Key stages of the program include a 2-week onboarding for trainers, a 4-week online course phase where trainers guide their trainees through the Internet Literacy Course, and a concluding 2-week mentorship phase introducing trainees to the world of Internet Governance.
