Price Details
As a small non-profit, we manage to maintain our independence by not being funded by outside agencies or corporates, and as such we do ask for a contribution towards costs of placement from successful applicants, which is USD$250/month mentoring costs for a remote placement (less than 10USD/day) and for in-situ placements this can reach a maximum of USD$900/month and covers food, accommodation, equipment etc. We are emphatically non-profiteers - a problem with a lot of the sector - but we do have costs we need to cover to stay afloat, not least in these tricky times. Finally, we deliberately receive small numbers of individuals to work with us and invest a lot of time, effort and support in their placements.

About Program

This mentorship exists in two parts which can be accessed independently or together. The first part is a remote placement during which an individual looking to launch or enhance a career in Environmental Journalism and/or Journalism with a particular focus on Latin America will be personally mentored at distance on stories in local, national and international scale, developing, writing and submitting these for publication whilst overseen by a team of experienced journalists including Talk Radio’s Latin America Correspondent.

The second is an in-person live participation in Latin America.

In both cases candidates will emerge with high quality portfolios of published work as well as experience directly relevant to pursuing freelance work or a career in Environmental Journalism.
