World Youth News


World Youth News is an global online news project for secondary school students from around the world. It is managed by iEARN, the world's largest non-profit network that enables teachers and youth to use the internet and other technologies to collaborate on projects that enhance learning and make a difference in the world.

Adhering to the highest journalistic standards, students select the issues they want to report on, and write, edit and publish their articles on the web-based news service. School publications can reprint articles from World Youth News to add an international component to their news.

Any secondary school student (between 14-19 years old) can join this project as a reporter after successfully completing an online training and certification course.

World Youth News aims to take students beyond becoming media literate into becoming international correspondents for student publications. Its worldwide team of reporters and editors works collaboratively while researching, writing and editing articles.

With an emphasis on unbiased reporting and respect for a diversity of views, World Youth News hopes to not only develop journalistic skills among students but also broaden cross-cultural understanding and provide an important global youth perspective.
