Media Cubs was created by a mum-of-two and journalist after failing to find clubs that celebrated the views, creativity and individuality of her children.
Kirsty and Grace have worked together in the social enterprise world for six years and they count themselves lucky to call Media Cubs their job! The pair combine their journalism, social enterprise and mum skills to create a world where kids from all backgrounds have the skills and confidence to share their views and make the news.
The Media Cubs pop-up TV studio and newsroom is based in the fictional town of Cubchester – where each session’s media, digital or creative challenge takes place. Media Cubs reporters are joined by our heroes Jack, Archie and CeCe who act as role models to inspire our Media Cubs reporters to demonstrate the values that are important in the newsroom: communication, leadership, teamwork, honesty and curiosity. And Cubchester’s baddie, Tycoon Raccoon, is always on hand to test our values!
