About the program | Community Digital Champions

The Advance Queensland Community Digital Champions program encourages Queenslanders to explore and enjoy the benefits of the digital age through the stories and activities of inspirational champions.

Who are they?

Community Digital Champions are volunteers from all walks of life who represent a business, industry sector, community or demographic group such as senior citizens, people with disabilities, Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander, or culturally and linguistically diverse Queenslanders.

Champions work in many fields - teaching, community services, agriculture, tourism, media, arts, small business, professional services and not-for-profits and share their digital knowledge with their community

They are located in Brisbane and right across Queensland - Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Logan, Fraser Coast, Rockhampton, Gladstone, Far North Queensland and in the west.

Meet our current Champs.

What they do

Champions voluntarily conduct activities and workshops to help improve Queensland’s digital literacy and digital adoption

We also maintain an alumni network for champs who have finished their tenure with the program but still want to stay involved.

Join the program

We are looking for outstanding individuals who are passionate digital advocates, wanting to give back to their community by helping others become digitally-savvy. They will exemplify the benefits offered by the digital world and inspire others to take part.

As a Community Digital Champion, you will:

  • raise digital awareness and digital confidence through the promotion of your personal journey and undertaking voluntary activities that support digital engagement
  • contribute to increased digital awareness and uptake of digital technologies by Queenslanders
  • be motivated by the knowledge and support you can give to their community
  • want to help Queensland to thrive in the global digital economy.

Voluntary activities undertaken should be free or very low-cost for participants, to ensure accessibility for all.

Why get involved?

  • Help Queenslanders to improve their digital literacy skills, understand digital technologies and simply get online.
  • Be a positive role model for your community.
  • Showcase efforts to improve digital awareness, adoption and connectivity in Queensland.
  • Engage with other champions, foster new collaborations, networking opportunities and profile your work.
  • Create new pathways for leadership and innovation.
  • Receive wider recognition for volunteer work you currently undertake.
  • Increase your profile.

The position is for a 12-month period.

Who can be a champ?

Champions can be any age but must be based in Queensland.

You are not remunerated, but you will be recognised for your valuable contributions and your community spirit.

At the completion of your tenure as a Champion, you will be invited to join our Champions Alumni.

Promotions, networking and collaboration

Champions will have the opportunity to share their digital journeys with Queenslanders. This could involve sharing stories about their voluntary digital activities, or participation in relevant community, industry or government-led activities.

Champions are also profiled on our online community interactive website, which receives thousands of visitors per year.

Inspiring stories are shared with business and community networks via Queensland Government social media channels and websites.

Champions may be offered opportunities to be involved in other activities run by the Queensland Government or supporting organisations, including:

  • case studies
  • online engagement
  • speaking opportunities
  • facilitating workshops
  • participating in exhibitions and displays
  • attending events
  • media opportunities.
