Teaching Kids To Use Social Journalism To Make A Lasting Change in Their Lives and Communities
We show the youth how to set up their own podcast/Vlog on various social platforms. In doing so we explain how they can harness the power of the net to make a positive change in their lives.
There is a huge lack of African American representation on the media side of the business and with M.E.L.A. we are looking to change this disturbing trend. We want to train the next generation of journalist and show them how to use the tools that are readily available to them.
To help the youth fully understand what they have learned and to show real world applications they will work on projects for the Main Event Sports Show and other partners of the MELA program. They will be able to see first hand how they use what they've learned in the real world.
