MAMA Youth Project (MYP) aims to equip young people from 18-25 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 under-represented groups 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.
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.
