Youth Media Directory

To join the Youth Media Directory please fill in the membership form, and email it to us on info@youthmediaagency.org.uk.

We at Youth Media Agency believe that Youth Media is a powerful tool for challenging the negative perception of young people in the UK, giving them a much needed voice.  We also know that Youth Media acts as an important pathway to a career in media and is a successful engagement tool for young people.

Youth Media Agency will host the UK’s only online Directory of youth radio, print and online media, and aims to:

  1. Promote and raise the awareness of Youth Media in the UK
  2. Give young people access to more volunteering opportunities in Youth Media

Testimonials

"Just thought I'd congratulate you on such a fantastic night yesterday! Was such a success. In addition, I'd like to also thank you for letting me come to this event, it was rare opportunity as I don't think I'd ever have the chance to meet BBC presenters and reports and them offering me their business cards in case I needed any advice! As well as one of the youth magazines, Voxx wanting me to start writing articles for them!"
