STUDENTS ARE THE SPOTLIGHT
CTV ABORIGINAL YOUTH COMMUNICATION CAMP'S
The CTV Aboriginal Youth Communication Camps are a flagship recruitment tool designed to provide Aboriginal youth with an upfront view of the television broadcast industry, and the working fundamentals of television production.
Participants will experience all the behind the scenes action that you always wondered about, the various departments, and what it takes to put a story on the air. Additionally, the youth will also have an opportunity to see a live news broadcast, meet and talk with CTV journalist/anchors, producers, engineers, and experience storytelling from a whole different perspective.
Not only do they experience all the behind the scenes action, they also get hands-on and with one-on-one training, and coaching from our news anchors, reporters, weather specialists and production staff --- the youth actually produce their own newscast or public service announcement.
In May 2011, Patti Jenkins, teacher, had this to say about the CTV Aboriginal Youth Communication Camps: "This is high quality event which explores all the areas of the news and gives our students a positive hands-on experience...It's exciting to watch the students go from being shy to being polished, confident on-screen talent. The whole day is planned down to the minute - just like the news."
If you know an Aboriginal youth that may be considering a career in journalism or in the television broadcast industry please call or email the number and address listed below to reserve a seat today.
