Basic journalism training for high school students in Kosovo

Kosovo

BIRN Kosovo is inviting students from Kosovo’s public high schools interested in media production, media literacy and tackling fake news to apply for training sessions on basic journalist skills. This activity is part of the EU-supported ‘Solidifying the Resilience of Kosovo’s Current and Future Journalists’ project. It will include ten training sessions for 200 high school students in a programme that aims to nurture young talent by mentoring students to produce videos, photos and articles.

 

At the end of each training session, youngsters will pitch their journalistic ideas, which the BIRN team will assess before selecting a minimum of 60 video and article pitches that will be published on the online platform KallxoRinia. The production process for all these articles will be overseen by a team of BIRN Kosovo editors.

 

There is currently a promising generation of high school students in Kosovo who have the talent, creative ideas and willingness to engage in investigative journalism. However, the media lacks a specific platform to provide these students with the chance to express their writing and community reporting skills. The main goal of the activity is to lay the path for increased independence, transparency, accountability, and civic engagement for these young people.
