The project engages more than 150 young people from Bielsko-Biała region (high school and college students) in content creation. Together, with support of mentors, we publish magazine every six months (available also online: www.issuu.com/redakcjaBB) as well as write articles, take photos, make films and graphics we publish on the project’s website: www.redakcjaBB.pl The young people participate in all decision-making processes throughout the project.
As part of the project, we organise workshops, meetings, individual mentoring sessions, with support of 10 professional mentors. Young people are supported personally and professionaly. They also have a full-time free of charge access to the fully equipped office to prepare content, take part in meetings and workshops or work on their own projects and assessments.
The redakcjaBB project was set up by Maja Dębowska in 2014 thanks to the funding from Youth in Action Programme, inspired by Live Magazine in London. In 2014-2016 the project was delivered as part of the Citizens for Democracy Programme, funded by EOG. Since, it has been funded from various grants, including FIO Programme (by Polish Ministry of Family, Work and Social Policy), private sponsors and profits made through Foundation's social enterprise activity.
The project is run by Let’s Do It Foundation, in cooperation with Towarzystwo Przyjaciół Bielska-Białej i Podbeskidzia.
