APPLICATIONS NOW OPEN FOR IJNET’S ARABIC TRAINING NETWORK

The International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) is partnering with the Google News Initiative on a large-scale effort to strengthen the digital know-how of thousands of journalists across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). Participants in the program will learn the most effective ways to gather and source information, enhance trust and verification, use data for stories and apps, and embrace immersive storytelling.

About the Program

The program is being offered through IJNet Arabic, an ICFJ platform that brings the latest training opportunities, tips and resources to journalists. IJNet Arabic’s strong following in the MENA region, along with its network of instructors, has made it a valuable resource for journalists who are looking to reinvent their skills. Combining IJNet Arabic’s reach and loyal audience with Google’s digital leadership, the program will:

  • Identify and nurture a core group of nine digital media trainers who will offer training on Google tools and others.
  • Equip 4,000 journalists across countries in the Arab world with the latest digital tools and resources.
