The International Press Foundation empowers the next generation of journalists to tell the stories that they think should make it onto the news agenda.
The platform acts as a tool for aspiring journalists to build their portfolio, as well as receive one-to-one feedback and guidance on their work. We work with our young journalists to identify issues that they want to report on, and then help put them in touch with relevant organisations and people to interview within their areas of interest.
Our reporters can write for one or more of the following sections:
- Human Rights
All IPF reporters write for us on a part-time, voluntary basis. Therefore, they are able to tailor the role around other work commitments.
NB: All IPF reporters must be aged 16-30.
