Make a REAL difference in Morocco with Journalism Internship Program
- Volunteer Opportunity posted by Love Volunteers
This amazing program supplies journalism interns to news agencies in Morocco to assist them in investigating and reporting on events and news as it happens. Students with a background in journalism and a good grasp of English are welcome to apply to this program which is designed to give a practical taste of what working within an international agency is all about. Some knowledge of French would be advantageous but is not a prerequisite. While experiencing a new country and culture, students have the opportunity to gain first-hand experience and develop useful skills within their field. Internships are available with local agencies as well as some international agencies such as Sky News and Morocco World News. The internship will be arranged based on the students’ skills and experience and once on-site, they will paired with an internship mentor who will monitor their workload and provide on-going support and assistance.
Goals of this Project:
- Provide journalism interns with quality work experience
- Supply additional support to busy news agencies
- Keep the world up to date on important news and events in the region
- Enable inter-cultural exchange which benefits both residents and international volunteers alike.
