Media Youth Project, Ghana (2000-2008)

Home / Media Youth Project, Ghana (2000-2008)

At M.Y. Project, our slogan was ‘Employing Today’s Media To Build Tomorrow’s Leaders’.

M.Y. Project was a voluntary project run by the youth and combined peer counseling (aimed at helping the youth discover who they are) with media outreach. Young people produced media programs sharing with their peers their stories of how they overcame challenges and took advantage of the opportunities around them.

M.Y. Project, Ghana, trained youth in media skills and equipped them to know and lead themselves in order to lead others. It played a major role in helping young people define themselves from the inside-out in keeping with our society’s move towards democracy and free market capitalism which emphasize individuality and labour specialization.

This is an overiew of key aspects of M.Y. Project, Ghana.



Here is a sample of some of the exciting, entertaining, educative and interactive events we have held.
