Ever wanted to know how to put together a live show? On June 12, 15 students found out how. Gary Gould, a broadcast television lab technician with the Ryerson School of Journalism, walked students through their first live show. From staffing the cameras to sitting in the control room the students got hands on experience putting a show on the air.

Verse City is a program aimed at getting racialized and marginalized youth interested in pursuing careers in news media. The program specifically targets youth from Toronto’s priority neighbourhoods who face multiple barriers to education, employment and access to community services.

Our goal is to share the tools and skills necessary to participate in the process of producing journalism.

Through the Verse City program, we hope to break down barriers and develop greater access to university education and participation in the field of journalism for marginalized youth.

Verse City Workshop

Verse City Workshop

The Ryerson School of Journalism is proud to partner with the Violence Intervention Project (VIP) at East Metro Youth Services (EMYS) beginning in 2008 to help build and create the Verse City Workshop – a series of workshops held both at EMYS and at Ryerson culminating in a four day long summer intensive multimedia camp.

The VIP program has so far produced a newspaper (the VIP Voice) and a magazine (Say Word)

Please take a look at the summer camp schedule for a breakdown of activities and events.
