Media fellowship for BC youth in or from foster care


Youth with lived experience in government care are frustrated by dominant narratives about BC’s child welfare system, and want less stereotypes and more hope. In recognition of this desire to take an active role and change these narratives, Discourse Media is offering a media fellowship for two such individuals this summer.

Youth aged 16-30 who accessed services from the Ministry of Children and Family Development or a Delegated Aboriginal Agency between the ages of 0-19 are encouraged to apply for the opportunity to work with professional journalists to produce stories, spark conversations, and build a movement of thoughtful, impactful child welfare media coverage.

Apply before the July 14 deadline
