Community Reporting is about helping people to have a voice.
Individuals are trained to tell, record and share their story using pocket technology (smartphones/tablets/flipcams) and the internet.
Trained Community Reporters receive a badge and accreditation and become part of a wider European network – the Institute of Community Reporters.
GMYN will be working with groups of young people to train them as Community Reporters as well as working with organisations to deliver Community Reporter training to staff.
Benefits of Community Reporter training:
Individuals training as Community Reporters will have the opportunity to:
- Gain basic media skills
- Gain storytelling skills
- Build confidence
- Meet new people

Opportunities for Young People:
GMYN will be running some projects that will offer free Community Reporter training to individual young people throughout the summer 2016.
Alternatively, youth groups can book training for their groups of young people (up to 12 young people per group). For more information, contact Quina (details below).
