New Canadian Media is pleased to offer journalists, writers and creative content producers from immigrant communities the opportunity to enroll in our pioneering mentorship program.
This program is designed to offer one-on-one training with high-calibre journalists who are part of NCM's Newsroom to help foreign-trained professionals or immigrant journalists across Canada to produce content according to Canadian standards and practices.
The mentorship program includes support in developing topical story ideas, identifying sources, interview techniques, using multimedia, as well as writing/revising the news or commentary contribution. Mentees will receive a $100 honorarium when their content is published on the site.
NCM sees this as a crucial part of its educational mandate and its efforts to "broaden the national conversation" by fostering new voices.
