In today's world, where information and the speed of its transmission play a crucial role, media and communications have become key elements of everyday life. The ability to critically assess a situation and create quality content is an essential skill for young people, especially those who seek to become changemakers

The "Girls Media Academy 1.0 / Академія медіа для дівчат 1.0" project is a unique opportunity for girls 18-21 years old who do not study journalism or communications as part of their formal education to develop skills in the field of media, communications and blogging. This project is a tool to help them become more resilient to disinformation and manipulation, as well as gain a comprehensive understanding of how media and blogging work in Ukraine. Graduates of the project will gain not only basic knowledge in the respective fields but also learn how to highlight socially important issues, such as gender inequality, climate change, body shaming, and much more

The project consists of:

  • 20 online meetings (10 informative and 10 practical)
  • Creative tasks between meetings
  • Interactive activities and practices
  • Additional resources for deeper independent study of each topic
  • Community of support and development in Telegram
  • Contest of journalistic materials, the best of which will be published in partner media
  • Competition of socially-oriented materials for publication in social networks, the author of one of which will receive a one-time grant of 3,000 UAH from the NGO "Women's League" for the purchase of additional educational materials/courses on a topic relevant to the subject of the project
  • Internship in the editorial office of the media partner of the project - online magazine "Ukrainky"
  • Two-day study visit to Kyiv for the most diligent graduates (20 people) with a visit to the media editorial office, a discussion on the development of journalism and blogging in Ukraine, as well as workshops on public speaking and the development of creative thinking

  • For active and ambitious girls who aspire to become changemakers using the power of words
  • For girls who want to expand their circle of acquaintances and get into the environment of motivated young people
