Community Digital Champions

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

Our Champions come from all walks of life and are passionate and outstanding individuals who want to give back to their communities by helping others to become digitally savvy.

They are teachers, young people, business people and seniors who represent a range of industries, communities and demographic groups throughout Queensland.

Champions like Penny Douglas who is passionate about empowering seniors to use digital technology, or fifth generation farmer James Walker who is showing farmers how diversification into tourism and technology can help rural properties in changing times.

Through their volunteer activities, the Community Digital Champions seek to show how being able to navigate the digital world can dramatically enhance quality of life.

As a result, this contributes to economic, educational and social outcomes for all Queenslanders.

Champions are based throughout the state and help a variety of groups gain skills including senior citizens, Aboriginal peoples and Torres Strait Islander peoples, people with a disability, people from non-English speaking backgrounds and people living in regional and remote communities.​​​​​​
