Amiable Communications also runs Media Makers programs for young people. The programs offers interactive workshops, skills-development and leadership experience with filmmaking, media and content creation for young people in schools, youth groups or in school holidays programs. The workshops help young people build their portfolios and confidence, produce professional media content, learn new skills and engage with the community. They also provide young people with a voice to produce creative content that matters to them.

What Young People Have Said:

“I gained experience from this workshop in that I learned how to interview someone properly – I’d done interviews with people for some school projects before, but not to a degree like this. I learned what it was like to work with a team of young people who shared similar interests as me and who I’d never met before. I thought it was really good that we were able to “take charge” of our little groups and that we were all involved in the process of making the video.” Luci (17).

“This program allowed me and others who joined the chance to gain confidence around new people. It also gave everyone an insight into this specific line of work which we wouldn’t have gotten so easily anywhere else as we participated to learn.
” Samantha (17).

“My favourite part was meeting everyone, working as a team and stepping out of my comfort zone and interviewing people. It was fun” Joyce (15).
