Executive Summary
Media play a central role in modern societies because they represent a primary source of information and are a main provider of entertainment for large numbers of people. As a result, the media make a decisive impact on the political, economic, social and cultural activities of people and institutions. They bring about new behavioral and cultural patterns. They also help to shape individual opinion, notions and beliefs.
This project is a response to a major demand of the general populace; the need for good governance in all types of institutions, private or public. In all countries and especially in democracies, media can play a key role in promoting good governance in the society. 
This is aimed at helping young people in the Media attain professional standards and practices at the managerial, editorial, production and programming levels.
It is also aimed at bringing to the fore the public recognition of Media organisation’s commitment to the highest professional practices and ethics, we propose to conduct a 2-day Youth Media connect summit with media experts and other seasoned professional providing the right tools and support for youths in media advocacy and the use of the new media for Change in Nigeria. It is our belief that this would provide the needed mileage for Youths to reach the various segments of the Nigerian and Africa Media industry.
It is within this context that, Talk Village International is looking to invite Youths to the National Youth Media Connect Summit. Youth policy makers in this field will include: broadcasters, print journalists, New media technology experts and other stakeholders in the industry, TVI hopes that the methodology and tools developed at the summit will favour and facilitate the transformation for state/privately controlled broadcast media outlets into Youth led service broadcasting media outlets. The Youth media connect summit mandate will also highlight the role of the media in ensuring that Nigeria and other African countries:
• Achieve the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) by 2015. 
 
• Nigeria achieves the vision 2020 objectives.
