Australia’s youth-driven movement against bullying, hate and prejudice, PROJECT ROCKIT, is proud to partner with local company Compton Green Real Estate to launch a wellbeing grant for schools in the Western Suburbs.
For the past 13 years PROJECT ROCKIT has been running strengths-based, anti-bullying workshops in schools around Australia, but this grant will allow them to work with local schools who might need a helping hand and extra resources for their wellbeing programs.
The Schools Grant, launched with the support of Footscray business, Compton Green Real Estate, will provide four passionate, Western suburb schools with access to a 12 month subscription of PROJECT ROCKIT Online for their year 7, 8 or 9 students. PROJECT ROCKIT Online, an award-winning, interactive workshop platform, is an Australian-first in the fight against (cyber)bullying, encouraging students to self-reflect on the online world and social leadership, while providing educators with live-data reporting.
“The Schools Grant annually spotlights different areas around Australia, but as a Melbourne-based organisation we’re excited to be working with a local business to empower local students.” Head of eLearning at PROJECT ROCKIT, Chloe Eckert said of the opportunity the grant brings. “(cyber)bullying is a social issue that plays out in technological space, and we want to support all young people with inspiring tools, so they can stand up instead of standing by.”
Schools in the Western suburbs are encouraged to apply for the grant before applications close on August 16th. You can apply, or learn more, at www.projectrockit.com.au/schools-grant/ or firstname.lastname@example.org
