Description du stage : While in Canada with the host NSGA, the Communications Specialist will assist in developing and implementing NSGA's public awareness strategy, organizing information, photos, reports and stories to develop messages, presentations, media articles and display boards to inform the Canadian public about key development and health issues in West Africa that NSGA is tackling in The Gambia and Sierra Leone with its Peer Health Education activities. In The Gambia and Sierra Leone offices, the communications specialist will work with NSGA media units, drama troupes and peer health education teams to help develop, script, direct, produce and edit broadcast materials (radio, television and film) to inform the public of key health messages to improve public health and prevent HIV/AIDS and other contagious diseases.

In Canada
In the NSGA Canada office, the Intern will collect and organize relevant institutional/media information from NSGA documents on file and through direct communication with Canadian and African partners of NSGA. He/she will develop, produce and edit media articles, display boards, multi-media presentations, and public awareness documents, including the NSGA bi-annual magazine. The Intern will assist with distribution of public awareness messages and information, electronically, by telephone, in public presentations and also with the media, when required, and develop effective strategies for reaching clearly defined audiences in Canada.

Overseas
In The Gambia and Sierra Leone, the Intern will work directly with media units and NSGA staff and/or partners to collect story material, organize existing media programs (audio and visuals for radio and television), and assist media personnel to develop, script, record, produce and edit media packages, as part of the NSGA public awareness strategy to inform the public. This may include working with local radio or television stations to negotiate additional broadcast media willing to carry NSGA educational and media packages. It may also include capacity-building training of NSGA staff and partners to increase technical, scripting, directing skills, knowledge of software and management of digital information. The Intern may be expected to travel with the Drama Troupes and field staff to remote and difficult rural areas to collect first-hand recorded material and stories about NSGA work (Peer Health Education, community events, and other on-going NSGA project activities).
