Situation

'72% of YP want their school to teach them about cyber-bullying...However 1 in 10 said they haven't been taught this.' This is true in the OJ community where internet usage is not encouraged during the younger years. As YP mature and start entering the workforce they begin facing the dangers of internet and need to be informed accordingly in a culturally appropriate manner. Lack of information can be detrimental for YP. This is especially true for girls who are 40.6% more likely to be bullied

Solution

BATC will be a programme designed for OJ teens, involving sessions, workshops, accreditation, competitions and a Safer Internet Day event to raise awareness of the dangers lurking out there; especially cyber-bullying and the effects of social media. As a result YP will be able to draw up their own boundaries, make informed choices about internet usage and stay safe, reducing the amount of abused and hurt teens.
