About Comms Boot Camp
Interested in a career in Comms? Want to work for charities and social action?
Join us at The Mill on the 10 - 11 November 2018 for a weekend Boot Camp for young people aged 16-22, living in thIe St James Big Local area, who are interesting in working in communications. The Boot Camp is your opportunity to learn new skills and gain experience supporting local charities and social action in Walthamstow.
The weekend will feature workshops led by experienced industry professionals, and hands on projects. We will be covering:
- Working with clients
- PR and what the media are looking for
- Using social media for good
- Team working
Once you've graduated from the Comms Boot Camp, you will be partnered with volunteers running a group, activity or event at The Mill to work on a Comms Project and gain some real world comms experience.
What did people say about our last Boot Camp?
"I thought it was a really enjoyable weekend and covered a broad range of relevant work topics. I learnt a lot and will take this into my work with charities."
"It is amazing and so friendly!"
Sign up by emailing comms@TheMillE17.org with a short paragraph about yourself, explaining why you’d like to take part.
Max 10 participants, lunch and refreshments on both days will be provided.
The Mill is a vibrant volunteer-lead space created by and for the diverse local community in Walthamstow, East London, as a place for people to meet, learn, create and make things happen locally. The charity was created by local residents following a successful grassroots campaign to retain the closed local library building for community use. The Mill is now a thriving community space based in the old library building, offering space for groups to meet, drop in social spaces and an active arts programme of exhibitions, events and courses.
This workshop is being offered free thanks to funding from St James Big Local.
Do you work in Comms or Marketing and live or work locally? Would you be interested in sharing your knowledge and experience with young people? We’re looking for people who would be willing to share their comms experience by running 45 – 60 minute sessions during the Boot Camp, as well as anyone who’d like to join the organising team for the weekend. Get in touch if you’d like to get involved.
