How To Get Involved!

Youth Projects

Every year both established members of the collective and newcomers are invited to get involved. In order to take part in Reel Youth the youth project must agree to pay a (negotiable) fee of 450 and identify a youth worker that can attend all meetings as part of the collective. The youth worker must also be available to share the different roles and responsibilities involved in making the project happen. 

These include:



Integration of young people

Training of youth workers and young people

Artistic development and support

Co-ordinating editors/dvd duplication

Filming Week/ Equipment


Documentation and Evaluation 


Organisation and Invidual Support

Reel Youth is grateful to all the support it has received in the past and welcomes this continued support so that Reel Youth can develop and thrive well into the future.

If you are an individual or represent an organisation that would like to contribute to the ongoing training and funding of the Reel Youth programme, we would love to hear from you.
