Position title
Terms of Reference – Video Production – Youth Inclusion for Violence Prevention Project

What is CSVR looking for?
We are looking for a production company that can create a 20-25 minute long video that showcases key learnings from CSVR’s Youth Inclusion for Violence Prevention project.
Service providers/ production houses should share a proposal with CSVR by the 22nd June 2022. This proposal should outline how the provider will cover the various aspects highlighted in this terms of reference document and provide CSVR with a sense of how the video would look and feel.

What is the aim and/or are the expected outcomes for this video?
The video is intended to be a two-part short documentation of the project. One aspect (10-15minutes) is intended to portray the work of the Community Work Programme in two communities, and to highlight the contribution of this programme in addressing violence in these communities.

While the video will seek to highlight the positive achievements, it will also look at some of the challenges. The key participants will include CWP implementing staff, beneficiaries and CWP representatives from Department of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs. The list of interviewees along with the research site will be finalised at the inception report.

Through the second part of the documentation (10minutes), it is hoped that key audiences (African youth, national to international donors, policy and programme developers, academics) will be able to rapidly access information about this project, what some of the key outcomes or learnings have included, as well as what the ways forward may be in these areas (youth inclusion, youth development, violence prevention). These key outcomes and learnings will be drawn from project reports and recommendations.

Key messages that we would like to share via this video production
Several key messages have been distilled through the multiple research products that CSVR and CHRIPS developed through this project. These messages include:
- See YIP advocacy plan (goals, narratives)
o What we have learned about youth inclusion in largescale public employment programmes or largescale youth-focused programmes.

The challenges and potential

-What we have learned about youth inclusion in policy development through to revision

-Learnings related to youth advocacy at local to regional levels

-Youth inclusion and violence prevention (though need to avoid the pathologizing narrative of youth and ‘panic’…)

-The need for more meaningful youth inclusion

The benefits of greater youth inclusion
-E.g. We need to include youth to prevent violence

-BUT we need to include youth because… rights-based perspective, (link Missing Peace) because most youth are making positive contributions at various levels
- Smaller percentage who are involved in or perpetuate violence are those who have experienced multiple risk factors, perhaps fewer protective factors.

- A twenty to twenty-five-minute-long video
- See info sources, look and feel for more info
Look and feel
- The video should highlight key products and messages, as well as motivate/ inspire viewers to take actions related to these key messages
o-Actions could include active citizenship or involvement related to youth advocacy, public participation, governance
o Simple actions could be to follow CSVR & CHRIPS
- CSVR commissioned a video/ doc on the role of the Orange Farm CWP in preventing violence. It provides a sense of what we have done before… it could be good to have project staff outlining what the project was about, key messages that have emerged from the project, and to weave these in with
