Applications to join Y.A.S. are closed at the moment, but follow us on Instagram @NetsafeNZ to keep an eye out for new opportunities to join.

We’re looking for young people (13-18 years) from around New Zealand to join Netsafe’s Youth Action Squad – Y.A.S!

Y.A.S will provide ideas and opinions about what young people do online, the types of problems they might come across and what we can do to help young people to be safer online.

No experience in being part of groups like this? Don’t worry – no experience is needed. We’re looking for regular people who are keen to have their say and we’ll provide all the training you need. If you have an interest in digital tech (hello gamers, Snapchatters & people just doin’ it for gram), coming up with creative solutions, meeting other people and helping others then you’re perfect!

What happens if you join Y.A.S?

  • We’ll set up a 1 day training session for you with the rest of the squad
  • You’ll come to Netsafe’s online safety conference in Auckland this October (all paid for!)
  • You’ll attend a monthly meeting to give us your thoughts on new ideas (physically or online)

You’ll join Y.A.S for 1 year to give your thoughts and ideas around online safety.
