Are you a talented young writer, video-maker or youth leader?
Commonwealth Correspondents are promising writers, videographers and youth leaders who want to engage with the rest of the world.
Aged 15 to 29, Correspondents are keen to tell other people about the ordinary and extraordinary events occurring in their community, town, country or region.
Want to get involved?
As a Correspondent, you will also be keen to explain how issues in the local, national or international news have affected you or made you think differently.
Most importantly, you will be keen to spark conversation and debate with other young people through your article writing.
What do I have to do?
To become a Correspondent, all you have to do is adhere to the code of conduct and commit to writing at least one short article (500-700 words) or creating a video every two months. This could be an opinion piece, news item, interview article, video package or monologue – whichever you prefer.
Why should I?
There are many benefits of becoming a Correspondent:
- Your articles will be read by thousands of other people all around the globe.
- The articles may influence opinion across the Commonwealth.
- It’s a great way of making friends and building knowledge.
- It’s also a great thing to add to your resume/curriculum vitae.
