To contribute to "Voices of Youth," I created a video out of our power point for the UN conference called, "Education Prevents Recruitment." Tell us what you think!

The OneMinutesJr. gives youth the opportunity to have their voices heard by creating one minute videos that share their ideas, dreams, fascinations, anxieties and viewpoints on the world. The OneMinutesJr. held a workshop in Zaatari refugee camp, Jordan 18-23 January 2014. Read Part Two and Part Three. Kids quietly filed into a pre-fabricated caravan for the first day of the OneMinutesJr. workshop. We are in base camp at the Za’atari refugee camp in northern Jordan, and today w...

The Great Ambassador Colin Greenwood was here in South Africa and caught a glimpse of what the young reporters get up to during their radio productions. Listen to his interview at Moutse FM with the young reporters and our own Baby girl (youth facilitator) as well as his interview with 5FM DJ Fresh (aka Thato Sikwane) and be inspired.

It’s a wrap! The OneMinutesJr. Amman workshop wrapped up on the 5th day with a great final screening, but not before a lot of editing time. The last day was spent editing all 17 films the kids had filmed over the last few days. Video artists, Taatske and Olivia, made rough cuts to all the films based on the storyboards from the shoots. Each participant sat with one of the two artists to finalize, edit, cut it down to one minute and choose titles and music (if necessary)....

Filming and editing were non-stop on the last 2 days of the workshop. On the 4th day, we started out by driving to Baqa’a camp. Baqa’a began as a refugee camp in 1968 for Palestinians who left the West Bank and Gaza Strip during the 1967 Arab Israeli War. What were once tents are now concrete shelters, and the camp feels more like a town. Our first film shoot was for Maram, an 18-year old who has already been married and divorced. She was very open about expressing this...

Filming, filming, filming. We only filmed 1 video on the 2nd day and have 16 more to film over the next 2 days. So the day starts off with a busy schedule of back to back shoots. First up is Rosh (19). He emigrated from Iraq in 2003 with his family and has tried hard to keep his spirit and identity. He believes everything has a start and an end, and that you should remain true to yourself no matter where you are. Because of his strong ideas of moving forward, we decided to film h...

The second day of the OneMinutesJr. workshop brought more talking and idea development. The participants of this workshop have a lot to say and were getting to the core of their ideas (the ones that really convey something personal still takes some time). Many times we delve deeper with youth to share something very close to their hearts. Yesterday, the focus of one young woman’s story was trying to be perfect and fulfilling expectations. We asked her to think more about it fro...
