FIND OUT WHY OTHERS
HAVE JOINED!

#SafeSocial strongly aligns with my interests and goals and has allowed me to be an active ambassador for the organization through spreading the message of how to use social media in a safe way.

ARIANE BISHOP#SafeSocial PR & Influencer Relations

I am excited to be working with #SafeSocial because I believe that, despite the negativity surrounding it, social media can actually be used as a positive tool.

JESSICA KHOURI#SafeSocial Digital Community Lead

#SafeSocial grabbed my attention after I noticed the ways I interact—or don’t interact—with people in my life solely online. They can spiral me to overthink my relationships, and I want to fix that.

RAZIEL HARJOSUBROTO#SafeSocial Social Media & Campaign Marketing Lead

I’m a big advocate for mental health awareness and joined the #SafeSocial team because I believe it is important to develop a healthy relationship with social media and the way you interact with your online world.

FAQ

HOW DOES THE #SAFESOCIAL HIGH SCHOOL VOLUNTEER PROGRAM COUNT TOWARDS COMMUNITY VOLUNTEER HOURS?

Become a #SafeSocialAmbassador for a school year and cross off 10 hours from your 40 required volunteer hours.

The #SafeSocial Ambassador Program falls under the following Community Involvement Opportunities: 

  • “Participation in an event or activity that contributes to the health and well being of others”
  • “Participation in an event or activity that supports ethical work of global nature or that promotes positive environmental awareness”
  • “An event or activity designed to benefit the community in general” 

Unlike The 9 Month Post-Secondary Program and the 12 Month General Program, in order to collect volunteer hours students must submit a completed form to the Project Manager that has dated proof of their participation in this program.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS TO STUDENTS?

  • Enhances self-confidence in social media knowledge and conducting themselves online
  • Reinforces civic responsibility with your online and offline self
  • Strengthens their community and allows students to learn new skills via social media
  • Students gain valuable work insight/experience within the media industry
  • Provides networking opportunities for future employment

WHEN ARE SIGN-UPS?

We accept new (formal) cohorts of ambassadors in Fall and Spring each year. Our sign-ups seasons are in September and March of each year.  Sign up here to be notified.
