I am beyond proud of the work the LAUNCHMedia team did covering Youth Week.

I’ve been mentoring this group of young people with the City of Darwin from about 6 months now and they’ve absolutely taken over the program and made it their own.

The idea of LAUNCHMedia is to train and mentor young people in social media influencing, event coverage, media and content creation. We’ve run this program since the beginning of 2017 and the current team of 6 young Darwinites are absolutely incredible. During Youth Week this year they attended more than 30 events and posted some absolutely brilliant content.

There’s a lot other organisations and events can learn from this program in terms of getting young people to produce content and engage in a meaningful way 🙂

Here’s some of my favourite content they gathered over the week.
