Who We Are
Millennial Things Network is a Canadian non-profit that supports a global network of young adults who are driven to bring change in their communities through journalism. As a non-profit, online platform, our mission is to highlight the shared and/or unique experiences of millennials across the world. Our team of volunteer writers, editors, web developers, designers and outreach workers achieve this by supporting one another through the network. To upgrade and improve skills in writing, editing, critical thinking, analysis, and photojournalism, we organize monthly workshops with experts from the industry.
What We Do
We work towards our mission by highlighting the struggles, achievements and experiences of millennials from various nationalities, ethnicity, religions, sexual orientations, disabilities, socioeconomic background and professionals, and by empowering them through recognition and training. We do this by:
Creating a global network of volunteers interested in digital journalism
Organizing workshops with experts in the publishing & news industry
Providing mentorship & peer support through the network
Provide guidance & editorial support to help create original content based on community issues
Provide a popular and recognized online platform for publishing their stories to a global audience
The non profit organization is a global network of young adults, recruited from various countries, who are interested in writing, community journalism, design and communications. The organization works to facilitate their skills development in critical thinking, analytical skills and written expression. This is achieved through a team of globally recruited volunteers, who received free training & workshops from experts in the fields of arts, policy, human resources, personal finance, journalism, digital marketing, and communications. Over the long run, these activities undertaken by the organization aim to create aware citizens who can share stories from their own communities and raise awareness on a global platform.
