Park View Project has been awarded Children in Need funding to work towards creating opportunities for young people between the age of 14 – 18 to contribute to North Tyneside community & voluntary sector resources.
This funding enables young people to promote issues that matter to them while identifying new resources and interests to share with their peers and the wider community of North Tyneside.
Involvement will consist of a series of assignments that instil basic journalism skills such as identifying stories, features and articles and sharing them via our purpose-made website/blog called Weevle, which means weaving various information resources together.
Using a variety of digital media individuals will be able to raise not only news relevant to young people, but also broadcast previously unpublished community news.
The overall aim is to integrate learning with the development of community connections for young people.
