Cyber-UP – CyberYouth Diversion Project
The world of the youth of Europe is migrating online as more and more communication, socialisation and education is carried out over computers and electronic networks. At the same time this online world provides a private global forum where e-skills can open access to significant illicit benefits and questionable peer recognition. The Cyber-Up youth diversion project of An Garda Síochána aims to help identified young people redirect those cyber skills to the benefit of their peers in a positive way by giving opportunities to learn, educate and share those skills with friends and benefactors.
The project started in September 2017 and is still running.
