The Cherbourg MoJo project was a 10 week mobile journalism training program at Nurunderi (Cherbourg) Campus of Southern Queensland Institute of TAFE (SQIT) organised and funded by TAFE Qld English Language and Literacy Services (TELLS). The project was specifically targeted at Indigenous Youth (15-24 year old) engaged in the SEE (Skills for Education and Employment) Program.
Mo = mobile + Jo = journalism. The MoJos learned the skills of mobile journalism (digital storytelling) using iPhone 5s and a special production kit, enabling them to tell stories about their community. They gained real job skills and improved their literacy and communication skills at the same time. The Mojo concept originated with Burum Media, who provided the Mojo training and filmed and produced this documentary on behalf of TELLS.

TELLS and SQIT would like to thank all of the staff involved in the project and the many individuals and organisations who participated in the filming of this documentary and the Mojo stories.
