What does the 2024 look like? Vuselela Media NPC and the Peermont School Support Programme partner in 7 Ekuruhleni schools to understand what the future looks like for our born free generation.
Seven high schools on the east rand of Gauteng, part of the Peermont School Support Programme (PSSP), have been selected to create short videos on the theme ‘Born Free Imagining the Future’, the topic of this years Peermont Pursuing Excellence Workshop.
Vuselela Media NPC will conduct tailored workshops to get young people at PSSP schools to create videos on their ideas of what their futures look like. The storytelling workshop, run over three days, will involve young leaders, entrepreneurs and press team members of the schools. Participating schools include: Germiston High , Tembisa Secondary, General Smuts High, Lethulwazi Comprehensive, Sunward Park High, Thuto Lesedi High and Unity Secondary.
Vuselela’s Bona Retsang Community Journalism training equips young people with the skills to tell their stories in an engaging way using mobile devices such as cellphone and tablets. Once these videos are shot, they are edited on entry level software. The best content created is broadcast nationally as part of Bona Retsang youth news and opinion show.
The videos created by the learners during the training at these schools will exhibited at the Peermont Pursuing Excellence Workshop, to be held on the 6th of September. The workshop is an intervention to get schools and learners thinking about what the future holds and how they can start preparing pro-actively for the needs of their future.
