We will be partnering with Lifesong Kenya to host a two-day digital skills training for youth in Ngong town and its environs on the 9th and 10th of December 2022.
The digital skills program will be targeting youths within Ngong town who have finished secondary school or are yet to join university or are in university and would like to be equipped with additional skills.
There are so many opportunities for youths in the digital space that they can maximize to make a living out of it.
Lifesong has been at the forefront of helping boys and young men get second chances through restorative justice, education and transitional housing. Informed by perennial social and ethnic divisions among the youths from diverse backgrounds, the digital skills training will explore the use of digital communication platforms to bring together and enhance conversation among the Kenyan youth while they earn a living from it.
Successful applicants will be taken through intensive training on:
- Theory of digital storytelling which will tackle news literacy.
- Digital storytelling tools, techniques and platform(s) to support young people in expressing themselves in persuasive and compelling ways by putting up effective stories and building online audiences.
- Use of digital communication to support content curation and development across all social media platforms.
- Journalistic ethics and fake news.
- Making money and opportunities online, among others
