Youth Guide System is...
For ymex.org members under 18 only!
The Youth Guide and Explorers system is a way to connect active members on ymex who have skills and smarts in media production and/or global issues with those who are seeking guidance in any of those areas. Members of ymex.org who stand out as leaders of the community will be notified that they have been selected and then given directions on how to apply. Explorers can find Youth Gudies that match their interests and ask them to be their guide—simple as that! Both Guides and Explorers score points for working together.
- link to, embed, or generate the content that inspires them and discuss the global issues that are most important to them.
- reflect on their abilities to create and examine media and use ymex.org and the linked resource as an inspiration and a platform for experimentation to try new tools and improve their skills.
- expand their network of contacts and collaborators outside of their communities and their region of the world to have cross-cultural communication.
- have a blast learning, experimenting, creating, and communicating!
Explorers keep in mind a Guide has to approve of the partnership - and they will likely be in high demand. So even though a Youth Guide can have more than one Explorer to guide, it is up to them to decide how many they can accept at one time. Youth Guides keep in mind that your greatest challenge will be helping others learn how to do something rather than just telling them how to do it.
All involved keep in mind this can be a great way to connect with and learn from other young people around the world. We recommend Guides and Explorers communicate with the ymex message tool, but we'll let you decide what works best for you. Most important is that you keep the communication alive.
Featured Youth Guide Story
This is a brand-new opportunity on ymex.org and there are no featured Youth Guides yet. But if you are an active ymex member under 18 with skills and smarts to share, apply to be a Youth Guide. You might just be one of the first in this spotlight!
