CALLING ALL ADVENTUROUS TEENAGERS Comment on Campaign for Bilateral Implants for Deaf Children


RTÉ is looking for adventurous Transition Students to take part
in a show that just may change their lives forever.

RTÉ Young Peoples Programmes, along with Yellow Asylum Films, are looking for people to participate in a forthcoming television series which will follow eight Transition Year students – four able–bodied and four with disabilities – on a life–changing and fun journey to an exotic mystery location. Applications from young people with hearing loss are welcome, including applications in Irish Sign Language.

Throughout, they will undertake a number of exciting challenges. They will be trained and fully supervised by a team of experts but they will still need a strong sense of adventure and commitment.

The only qualifications are that you must have an open mind and a desire to test your limits. You’ll also have to be in Transition Year in your school, sixteen years of age or older on January 1st, 2013, have a valid passport and be free, ready and willing to travel at some stage during the Spring of 2013 to a place most people have never even thought of visiting.

Those interested just simply need to upload a five-minute video to:
making the case for why they should to be chosen as one of the lucky eight.

The deadline for all applications has been extended until Thursday 24th January 2013.

It is not necessary to upload a video, but it is necessary to complete the application form!
(Please ignore the deadline date on the RTE link page)

Just tell us a little about yourself in your own way – this is more an audition than a job interview so make your video as lively, moving, funny, or interesting as you wish.
