Mil V2021

Mainstreaming Media and
Information Literacy (MIL) with the Youth

AIJC is working with youth
organizations in the Philippines in
mainstreaming media and information

literacy (MIL) through workshops and
coaching sessions.

These initiatives are part of the MIL in Youth Civic Engagement Project implemented by AIJC with support from UNESCO and in cooperation with the National Youth Commission.


In September 2020, AIJC engaged the first batch of youth organizations in the MIL Orientation and Planning Workshop, where the participants drafted action plans on how to integrate MIL into their organizational policies and activities. Phone consultations are also being scheduled with participating organizations with limited internet access.


In the coaching sessions that will follow, participating organizations will be guided in the finalization and implementation of their MIL action plans.

This is just the beginning, as the project is being expanded to include more youth organizations and partners!
