Hello Youth Media in Belize!

Seven instructors arrived in Orange Walk, Belize to teach 30 kids about media, and the different ways that they can create content and upload their content to the web. This is an effort put together by the University of The West Indies Open Campus, UNICEF and Holly Edgell.

During the opening ceremony UNICEF’s representatives expressed that one of the goals for Youth Media in Belize is that this group of teenagers learn how to use the media to express the opinions about children’s rights. Media should become a channel for these children to express their views in creative ways.

We hope that these kids become the creators of local programming that discuss topics of interests for them and their peers.
