About Shine Media

Shine Media is a Social Enterprise that works with young people from culturally diverse backgrounds who aspire to work in the journalism field. We work with two age groups: 14-17 year olds and 18 -24 year olds, who have an interest in print, online or broadcast journalism. We provide these young people with the following services:

Mentoring

Work Experience Opportunities

Careers & Networking Events

Journalism and educational Training Projects

Funding for academic training

Career Development Projects

Shine Media’s main objective is to increase the representation of people from diverse backgrounds within the media industry. We hope to make young people from diverse backgrounds more attractive to potential employers and thus increase the number of diverse people working within the journalism industry. We specifically aim to increase diversity within editorial teams. We want to see a shift in the number of socially disadvantaged people in print, online and news reporting.
