How we empower journalists

Alfred Friendly Press Partners provides training in the United States and abroad for journalists from countries with underdeveloped media. During the six-month fellowship program, reporters train at the Missouri School of Journalism and within leading U.S. newsrooms so they can practice journalism that is ethical, innovative and influential. Fellows learn from mentors and editors with broad experience. Journalists improve their reporting, writing, investigative and multimedia production skills, along with their knowledge of journalism ethics, while gaining a global perspective on their work in their own countries.

Alfred Friendly Press Partners leverages the abilities and experiences of its 300-plus alumni as part of its international training program. Alfred Friendly staff members and advisors work with alumni from a target country to develop a journalism training program that best fits their media’s needs. U.S. trainers work together with alumni and local journalism educators to select participants and conduct hands-on, practical training.
