WHAT IS IT?
The Young Journalists program is a non-formal and inclusive training practice, with journalism and mass media as key tools, aimed at teenagers and young adults aged 13-24. The members of the group “Young Journalists”, a group of teenagers and young refugees, immigrants and Greek women, publish the newspaper “Migratory Birds”, whose content, subject matter, and the composition of the articles are result of collective work of the members. The newspaper includes texts in English, Arabic, Greek, Urdu and Farsi, while the reader can read the articles of the editorial team on the website www.migratorybirds.gr.
The Young Journalists program was featured as a promising good practice and example of peer-to-peer participatory learning in a practical handbook for professionals working with children, compiled by the Council of Europe’s Children’s Rights Directorate.
