The Irish Academy of Public Relations is holding a summer media camp for teenagers this July. Young people aged from 13 to 17 years old can apply to take part.

Scope of the summer media camp

Teenagers will learn a number of skills. First of all, these include journalism skills such as writing news, presenting on the radio, and presenting to camera. In addition, teens will learn about organising events and problem solving. The camp will also help teenagers decide whether or not to pursue a media career.

Ellen Gunning, the Director of the Academy, said: “This is a really exciting course. As well as learning about managing crisis, presenting on television and DJing on radio, teenage attendees have fun with their peers and grow in confidence and abilities. Our tutors are seasoned professionals in their various fields and will deliver rich content on the various aspects of media.”
