About Us

MAMA Youth Project (MYP) aims to equip young people from 16-25 years of age with the skills and experience to secure long-term, fulfilling employment in the TV and media industry. We particularly focus on young people from BAME, disadvantaged backgrounds and those with limited educational or employment opportunities, including unemployed graduates. We are committed to getting young people into employment and to bringing diversity to the media industry.

Our Training Programmes

A unique aspect of our training model is that it puts participants into a 'real-time' work situation during which they have to work in a tightly knit team to produce 6 episodes of a magazine TV show called 'What's Up', which is currently broadcast on Sky 1. Participants are trained in core skills including research, contributor sourcing, camera work, lighting and sound operation, location-finding, recording, editing, marketing and legal contracts & production paperwork.
