The International Youth Digital Leadership Council is a 12-member council of young leaders between the ages of 16 and 24 years who are working on issues related to digital platforms and safety, and who are interested in reducing digital harm for children and youth.
With guidance from USAID, council members will bring their personal and professional experiences working on digital platforms and safety to advise on key topics related to digital engagement and the prevention of digital harm to young people.
Digital Council members are expected to start in March 2021 and serve for one year with the possibility of extension for a second year.
