The COVID-Safe Youth Content project was delivered from April – August 2021.
A team of culturally diverse young people from across the City of Greater Dandenong were engaged to develop youth-friendly social media content, promoting COVID-Safe behaviours.
The project team produced 14 carousel posts and 4 videos, reaching over 21,000 people.
The content aimed to promote COVID-Safe measures in settings frequented by young people, including schools, shopping centres, religious celebrations and birthday parties. The project team also recognised the impact of COVID-19 on young people’s mental health, and sought to promote self-care strategies during lockdowns.
Examples of the young people’s work can be seen below.
