Are you aged between 17 and 23, and care about your city? In 2024, we plan to launch our first youth journalism training programme.

Part of it will be sharing what we know about journalism and how to do it. And part of it will be giving Dubliners in this age group the chance to shape and contribute to coverage in Dublin Inquirer of issues affecting them, and the formats in which we publish.

It’s part of the YoCoJoin project, a pan-European initiative with five other newsrooms and organisations, under the guidance of the Dutch local public broadcaster Omroep Tilburg.

Our mission has always included trying to clear the way for those who face barriers into journalism, and are underrepresented, in Ireland. As such, we’ll be seeking out applicants particular from minority and working-class backgrounds.

We’re smoothing out details. But if you would like to stay updated, please do sign up to our mailing list for this project.
