7 Digital Stories from TYPF's Staff

In Jan 2009, The YP Foundation worked with the Global Fund for Children and the Center for Digital Storytelling and conducted a digital media workshop with 7 staff members.

The idea was to give YP staff a chance to capture what it means - to them - to be part of a youth led and run machinery - that creates projects and works with the aspirations of other young people.

Meet 7 of our event managers, graphic designers, project heads, admin liaisons and video volunteers. Our core staff.

They’ve worked with young people to facilitate a range of projects, from the rights of the transgender community, health and education programmes for slum children, life skills workshops with adolescents, music programming, film festivals on breaking stereotypes, volunteer management to sexual rights and reproductive health workshops.

They are fundraisers, administrators, trainers, documenters, managers and peer educators, all rolled into a crazy mix of 40 young people who run The YP Foundation.

How do you see The YP from within?

These are their stories.
