  • S2R -Supporter to Reporter gives young people skills and confidence through sports reporting. By working for real as reporters at sports events they learn communication skills, teamwork and how to meet deadlines. As they interview players, coaches, organisers and fans they learn to interact with a wide range of people and grow in self-esteem. Young people are passionate about sport and love using digital media to record, and share their lives. They create reports using video, audio, text and images, and publish them all for the world to see on the safe social network Radiowaves: S2R Aims To Give young people confidence, higher aspirations, communication skills and a broader outlook on life Equip young people for the world of work, in particular by giving them media skills that are in demand across industry: social media; digital production of audio, video and images, blogging, interviewing, writing and reporting Help young people gain transferable life skills: teamwork, meeting deadlines, discipline, handling pressure, creativity, resilience, empathy, critical thinking and rising to a challenge! Provide a way for all young people to engage with the 2012 Olympic Games and get their story heard Schools can engage remotely too
