Kelly Freitas


Kelly is all hands on deck when it comes to the coordination, creation and delivery of our Education, Youth and Outreach programme and activities.

Kelly is our first point of contact for any external projects aimed at engaging Jersey’s youth community, to help deliver our JOIC strategic outcome to ‘put children and young people first’.

Some of the important areas Kelly covers in her fun and interactive sessions involve providing tools and guidance about knowing what personal information is, and how to protect it in everyday life which includes social media, gaming, and other digital platforms. One of Kelly’s top priorities is to bring data protection to life via a mix of fun games and quizzes to make school, youth, and community sessions as appealing as possible to her target audience. Examples include Kelly’s Football Privacy Quiz, a Dodge the Identity Theft game, and an adapted version of Bingo to encourage young people to think twice before sharing their personal information.

A key part of Kelly’s role is to help young people feel empowered by educating them about their privacy rights while also reminding them of how valuable their personal information is.

As part of her work in secondary schools and colleges, Kelly also runs sessions around the theme of ‘Data Protection in the Workplace’. These sessions support young people to understand what they need to know about the data protection law in the world of work, not only to protect themselves but to protect customer and staff details and encourage the young people to feel confident with the principles of data protection law, such as keeping personal information safe, accurate and secure. Kelly also coordinates our JOIC Courtroom Challenge for students in years 12 and 13, which brings data protection law to life!

Kelly works closely with our Community Engagement Lead and Communications & Public Relations Lead to build positive working relationships and brand awareness within our Island community to support our long term vision to create a culture in Jersey whereby ‘privacy becomes instinctive’  for islanders of all ages. This involves sharing information, guidance and tips to help young people understand the role of the JOIC and what we do, as well as exploring opportunities to reach youth groups of all ages islandwide, ranging from schools and youth clubs to after school clubs and scout groups.

Kelly has previously worked within the Health and Social and Childcare industries and has a background in customer service. She is currently studying towards an Education and Training qualification.
