Unlocking the talents of marginalised youth in a digital media environment - ACTION

ACTION is an innovative project that aims to build the digital media skills of front-line youth workers so that they can integrate these new skills in their work with young people. ACTION aims to give a voice to young people, to use digital media to share their stories. ACTION is innovative in that it encourages youth workers to use available digital media – tablets, smartphones and available apps - to develop and produce short film projects with their groups of learners. ACTION will engage marginalized youth, support them on a journey to unlock latent talents and raise awareness of opportunities for personal and professional development. Working through informal ‘film crews’, learners will be supported to develop basic skills as well as their social and civic competence.
