About Program

Bolivian Express is a monthly online and print publication, it is the largest English-language news outlet in Bolivia. We offer 1-3 month internship programmes in journalism, video documentary production or Spanish.

Interns collaborate to create a theme for each issue and content to match; a short documentary is also made alongside each month’s theme. We welcome everyone to take part in the BX experience - we receive graduates, current undergraduates and school-leavers; we assign projects and provide support based on experience and capacity - don’t worry, we are here to help!

Tasks and daily activities include: pitching story ideas, researching, interviewing sources (with assistance from a translator when needed), writing and editing your own stories for publication (with support from our staff of professional journalists), photography classes (including editing photos using Adobe Photoshop), 32 hours of one-on-one Spanish classes per month.
