About Us

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.

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 team to produce broadcast quality content. Participants are trained in core skills including research, contributor sourcing, camera work, lighting, sound operation, location-finding, editing & production paperwork. Our main training activities take place at Sky, TW7 5QD. Please click on the Our Training tab to find out what training programmes we are currently running.
