Youth Journalism School in Estonia

The Youth Journalism School in Estonia is organised in close partnership with the largest media in the country that offers youth a chance to publish their work right after the Intensive one week training on journalism.

The aim of the Journalism Summer School is to educate and inspire future Russian speaking journalists in Estonia. The project is supported by the Swedish Embassy in Estonia.

A scholarship programme ensures free participation, meals and networking opportunities for all the participants throughout the week.

The programme will cover the following topics and fields:

  • basics and ethics of journalism,
  • printed press formats,
  • journalistic genres,
  • interviewing techniques,
  • TV and video formats,
  • news verification and fact-checking,
  • media as a business.

After the Summer School participants will have an opportunity to publish their works on a special platform.

The programme will be led by well-known professional journalists from Estonia, Latvia and Russia.
