YMCA Youth Press Gallery

The YMCA Youth Press Gallery is an exciting opportunity for young people who are interested in media and journalism to tell the stories of the Youth Parliament of Victoria.

It is a program for young people aged between 16-25 currently studying, or who have an interest in, political journalism, photography, or filming to gain valuable experience serving as the Press Gallery for the YMCA Victoria Youth Parliament program.

Press Gallery participants will be given access to a range of training opportunities from experts in the journalism industry, developing skills that are highly sought in journalists. Participants will also be given the opportunity to meet and network with professional Victorian and national journalists.

In order for the best coverage of Youth Parliament to be obtained, the YMCA Youth Press Gallery recruits for the following roles:

  • News reporters
  • Digital journalists
  • Videographers
  • Photographers

Applications will close at 11:59pm on Friday 15 March 2024.

The program can be extremely competitive, therefore submission of a CV/resume demonstrating relevant media/journalism skills is critical for consideration.
