International Center For Journalists

United States

The International Center for Journalists advances quality journalism worldwide. Our hands-on programs combine the best professional practices with new technologies. We believe that responsible journalism empowers citizens and holds governments accountable.

Over the past 30 years, ICFJ has worked with more than 80,000 professional and citizen journalists and media managers from 180 countries. We work with strong local partners and a network of dedicated alumni.

ICFJ does more than train journalists. We launch news organizations, media associations, journalism schools and news products. With a focus on innovation, we have formed networks of citizen journalists who are using new mobile services to engage underserved communities in India, Indonesia and Ghana. We are helping journalists aggregate data for digital maps that they can use to track pollution in the Amazon rainforest. And we have organized the first Africa News Innovation Challenge to solve digital bottlenecks and create new applications for use in newsrooms across the continent.
