Wanted: volunteer professionals to mentor South Africa’s rising media stars
Could you give up a few hours a month to help mentor young media trainees starting out on their careers? Use your expertise and professional skills to help someone get that step up in their careers? For a small time commitment, you could have a huge impact…
A unique social enterprise in South Africa, Live Magazine SA publishes a quarterly magazine that is 100% created by young people trying to break into the media industry. Our mission is to educate, entertain and empower 16-25 year olds across the country. Only a year old, Live Magazine is a unique force in the publishing industry. ABC certified as the highest circulating youth lifestyle title in South Africa, we print 52,000 copies and distribute directly free into the hands of young people in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban and PE.
Based mainly in Cape Town, we work with a rolling team of youth trainees who create the magazine with guidance from a small team of professional mentors. As we grow and expand, we are now looking for a new wave of volunteer mentors to support our in-house team, across editorial, design/ art direction, photography, illustration, styling or even sales and marketing.
If you think you have some skills or experience you’d like to pass on, and could commit to as little as one afternoon every 3 months, then we’d love to hear from you. We can’t offer payment, but we can promise you’ll be inspired and energised by working with our team, and become part of creating some of the amazing stories helping our diverse young team of creatives moving into work.
