Our Startups and Initiatives
Media Civics Lab
The Media Civics Lab is a hyperlocalized, multi-stakeholder approach to equipping Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) officials with crucial fact-checking and media literacy and information skills and resources so they can be good ambassadors online and create a localized media education training in their respective communities.
Amidst the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, the world faces an “infodemic” or information pandemic. This calls for a more calibrated response to critical thinking on a grassroots level. Engaging the Philippine youth who will champion media and information literacy (MIL) has never been this important.
Learning Resource for Media Literacy and Awareness
The Media Civics Lab aims to develop a comprehensive media literacy and awareness curriculum for Filipinos in an accessible online portal, gathering insights from journalists, media practitioners, and civil society organizations.
Comprehensive Online Training
Starting from the Global Media Information and Literacy (MIL) Week 2020 until December 3, 2020 (YSEALI Annual Anniversary), 100 SK leaders will undergo a comprehensive online training on media literacy and awareness.
The Seminar-Workshop series aims to equip Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) and other emerging community youth leaders all over the country with crucial responsible digital citizenship skills and groom them to become the next breed of media literacy and awareness champions in their respective communities.
Grants Competition and Community Mobilization
The program aims to support small-scale, localised media literacy projects through a policy-making competition. The winners of this competition will receive official offline toolkit versions and exclusive weekly mentoring from a network of experts.
