On April 2, World Pulse is launching the fourth annual year of Voices of Our Future, an online training program in citizen journalism and digital empowerment that gives a new generation of emerging grassroots women leaders the skills and knowledge they need to actualize and vocalize their visions for themselves, their communities and the world.
During the month-long application process, women from around the world receive learning materials via an online classroom introducing them to the frontiers of new media and women’s empowerment. World Pulse asks them to complete four short writing assignments, which are evaluated by volunteer listeners and staff.
At the end of the application process, thirty applicants are selected to become Correspondents and take part in a full five-month long program starting in June,where they will gain the tools and knowledge to vocalize and actualize their visions for change.
Specifically, Correspondents will learn about the principles of practicing ethical citizen journalism; how to write compelling frontline journals, profiles, feature stories, and op-eds; how to use new media to amplify their voices; and the basics of digital storytelling.
In the last two years, over 1.700 women from 140 countries have applied. The 90 women who have participated in the full training program have gone on to create immense change around the world, and have touched more than 2 million lives!
Join the growing wave of empowered voices across the globe! Visit the Voices of Our Future Application Group to apply.
