SELMA Ambassador programme

Do you want to play an active role in hacking online hate? Do you work with young people aged 11-16? Then become a SELMA Ambassador!

What does it mean to be a SELMA Ambassador?

A SELMA Ambassador is an organisation and/or a professional that shows commitment to hacking online hate speech by engaging with the SELMA programme in three key ways:

  1. Raising awareness about SELMA with their wider network
  2. Using the SELMA Toolkit activities with young people and/or professionals working with young people
  3. Taking steps to keep the SELMA spirit alive by planning some follow-up after initial engagement (e.g. planning to run another toolkit activity, setting up an anti- hate speech event, etc.)
