Momentum World's mission is to enhance the career prospects of all young people. Our partnership with BLESMA and our sending organisations in this project gives an opportunity for 2 young volunteers from disadvantaged backgrounds to work in a busy headquarters office of an internationally recognised charity in close proximity to Central London. The objectives of the project are: - To offer an opportunity for relevant work experience to build volunteers cv's and enhance future employability- To improve competences in media literacy, critical thinking and team working as a pathway to future employment- To give a greater understanding of working with disability, understanding diverse needs and using initiative - To improve language skills- To give an opportunity to be involved in event organisation and delivery- To be professionally mentored by PR and journalist professionals- To enhance intercultural awarenessBLESMA is looking to improve marketing and communications both internal and external and to take a wider view of intercultural and international co-operation. They seek one volunteer to have a role of social media assistant responsible for all social media output to members of the charity, their families and friends and supporters of the organisation including corporate donors and sponsors. The other volunteer will work more directly within marketing and PR being mentored by a London PR professional and a full time journalist as well as learning this particular skill through professionals within the office team. In both cases, as much time as possible will be given to volunteers assisting with outside events as well as their main role.
