Pacific Youth : The Launch


Announcing this years pro bono project.

(WORLD) Pacific Youth is a five week online social media course for twenty youth leaders from Tonga and Papua New Guinea.

Coordinated by MediaSnackers the project is being delivered in partnership with Antonio López (World Bridger Media), Chris Schuepp (youth media consultant for UNICEF and theoneminutesjr.) plus Youth Action for Change.

Born out of a conversation and request from the founder of Youth Action for Change (check out the podcast we did with her here), MediaSnackers is excited, scared and honoured to coordinate this bold initiative.

The two reasons as to why we're doing this:

• to give something back—our annual pro bono projects are about enabling access to our services for those who would usually never have the opportunity (hence the participants being made up from two remote youth organisations on the other side of the planet);
it's a first—to our knowledge this has never been done before (an energising factor in the whole project).

For more information on the agenda and delivery partners please check out the welcome page we have put together for the participants.
