by Megan Lewis | 24th Aug 2023

Are you aged 16 to 25, from Gwent, and ready to make a real impact in Wales? If so, we’ve got an incredible paid opportunity for you!

We’re on the lookout for motivated young individuals to join our project team and help us design fun social media & media literacy workshops for 11 to 14 year olds in Blaenau Gwent.

Who are we?

We’re ProMo Cymru, a charity who run a number of youth and community projects e.g. Meic, TheSprout, Ebbw Vale Institute. We’ve partnered with Ofcom (who supervise the communications industry across the UK) and Boys and Girls Clubs of Wales to improve young people’s media literacy in Wales. We want you to be involved!

About the role

You will play a vital role in designing and delivering workshops to help 11 to 14 year olds better understand the online world and make their online experiences more positive. We’ll be doing this by teaching them about media literacy and online / social media algorithms in an engaging way. We need your help to shape the content and format of the workshops. You’ll collaborate with a team of like-minded individuals, brainstorming, planning, and testing activities to help young people navigate the digital landscape with confidence.

You don’t have to be an expert in the topic or have any experience to apply, we’re all here to learn together!

We’ll meet between 1 to 3 times over September/October (either virtually or in person) to plan and design the sessions, meet in-person to test the activities in September/October, and then deliver sessions for young people between October and February.
