YMCA Youth Press Gallery is a program for young people (aged between 16-25) currently studying, or who have an interest in political journalism, photography and/or filming/editing to gain valuable experience. Participants of the program serve as the Press Gallery for the YMCA Youth Parliament of Victoria program.
Press Gallery participants will be given access to a range of training opportunities from experts in the journalism industry and the chance to develop skills that are highly sought in journalism. Participants will also be given the opportunity to meet and network with professional journalists.
During the three sitting days of Youth Parliament, the group will work intensively to create written and visual content for print and online media outlets, interview participants and manage social media platforms.
