Do you care about youth issues? Do you have a lot to say? Do you think young people deserve a space to speak up without fear, and a platform via which their voices can be magnified so their issues can be brought to the attention of major stakeholders – parents, teachers, employers, the government? Then you should audition for Season 7 of Talk Up Yout TV Show – Jamaica’s only Television Show completely dedicated to “Giving the Youth a Voice”.
‘Talk Up Yout’ develops, supports and highlights programmes that encourage adolescent development and participation. Adolescent participation in Jamaica remains highly uneven. The adolescent voice is largely missing from decision-making and policy development. Talk Up Yout’ – a nationally televised talk show – is one of the few platforms designed to share adolescent views on issues affecting young people with solutions as the final outcome.
- All selected candidates will join panels of their peers to discuss major issues on live television, broadcast nationally.
- You must be between 15 and 25 years of age to audition;
- Your video must be on a youth issue.
Just send a short two minute video of yourself speaking about a youth issue of your choice, giving a solution to that issue and explaining why you’re the best fit for a Talk Up Yout panel! No issue is too big or too small. Just be yourself! Email to firstname.lastname@example.org or send us a Facebook message. Please include your name, age, community and contact info in your message.
