empower pods 
what is it?

Empower Pods is our brand new programme established to support young people to learn, lead and create in a community-led space.

 

The project will run for one year and during that time you will be involved in co-producing your own space for making change on tech safety. Supported by a project co-ordinator and pod leader, we will provide free training and workshops on tech and online abuse.  At the end of the training, each pod will design their own project - this could be anything from putting on events for other young people, presenting in schools or youth spaces or speaking with people working in the field about how to build safer platforms for young people. 

We will establish two Empower Pods: 

  • Offline: hosted in central Edinburgh with IRL meet-ups on a regular basis

  • Online: hosted by a webinar and co-created online community space 

We will provide: 

  • Training and workshops in a 5-week block around digital citizenship, tech abuse and support you to co-create a project with your pod team 

  • Opportunity to co-design solutions to tech abuse in your local community 

We are looking for a range of volunteers to get involved: 

  • 2 x Empower Pod leaders 

  • 12 x offline pod members 

  • 20 x online pod members
