Let’s Move Beyond Survival Mode – A Call for Applications

Moving Beyond Survival – A Call for Applications

CJMP recently received a grant from the Community Radio Fund of Canada to train people to sustain Powell River’s community radio station. CJMP is seeking participants from our community for an eight-week intensive training program that will provide these individuals with resources to become leaders and mentors at CJMP. The program will develop skills in Media Literacy and Citizen Journalism, as well as skills in facilitation and leadership, so that upon completion, participants are equipped to do the following – and – to teach other members how to:

Identify and gather stories
Write and tell stories for radio
Produce stories
Broadcast stories on the radio
The BSP will begin Sept. 12 and run until Nov. 26, 2011. Participants will dedicate 30 hours per week (including roughly 15 hours instruction/week) to training and practice. This will take the form of group workshops, guest instructors, and individual and small group field work as well as work and reflection online. The group will be co-facilitated by Joel Benson and Zoe Ludski, who will guide participants through the program. Using discussion, journals, blogging and audio logs, the group will reflect on their experiences and connect them to day to day work at CJMP, allowing the process to be passed on to the rest of the membership. BSP requires participants who will become dedicated, engaged and active members of the Powell River Community Radio Society and CJMP, that will teach other members their skills so our Human Resources will continue to increase.
