The YeS Project – guided walkthrough

eSafety offers guided walkthrough sessions for all teachers interested in implementing our first-of-its-kind digital and social health program.

The YeS Project is a youth-focused initiative designed to inspire, ignite and enable positive change within digital spaces for the collective good. It encourages young people aged 14 to 17 years to act as positive leaders and supportive friends in all their social spaces, especially online. The YeS Project aims to help students learn about their digital communities, and to transform them.

The one-hour overview for teachers of the YeS Project will:

  • review supporting material to explain the research that underpins the YeS Project
  • provide an overview of research that aims to understand young people’s digital cultures
  • give advice on how the YeS Project links with Australian Curriculum and programs for Years 9 and 10 (including respectful relationships)
  • discuss ways of fitting incorporating the YeS Project into your school or setting
  • recommend approaches for planning and facilitating the YeS Project

To participate in one of the YeS Project sessions, choose one of the following sessions to register your attendance.

Note that the YeS Project guided walkthrough does not count towards accredited hours.

Technical information

Shortly before the webinar you will be sent an email containing a 'Join Webinar' button. Click on this to attend the presentation. You should plan on attending the presentation about 5 minutes before it is scheduled to start to make sure you don't miss anything.

GoToWebinar (our webinar delivery platform) should guide you through the setup process at this point. If it does not, there are a few things you can check:

  • If you have a personal or network firewall, make sure that GoToMeeting/GoToWebinar is not being blocked. If so, unblock GoToMeeting/GoToWebinar and try again. (Consult your firewall's help document for more information on how to unblock.)
  • If this is the first time you're attending a webinar through GoToMeeting/GoToWebinar, and the application does not launch after you click 'Join Webinar' (if you don't see the GoToWebinar control panel), look for the 'launch software' button on the page.
  • If you are still having trouble, try using a different browser (Firefox, Safari, Edge or Chrome), and click 'Join Webinar' again.
