ACTIVITIES FOR YOUNG PEOPLE

BE HEARD

Get published on our global news site

 
Our global news site features content by experienced journalists and youth alike. You, too, can have your work published here.

We welcome submissions from any young person in any form (reported stories, personal reflection essays, creative content) and format (written articles, podcasts, photo reports, video recordings or some combination of the above!).

Please note that we only publish content that meets the highest editorial standards. Content must be balanced, authoritative, compelling and substantive to find a home here.

If you’re interested in publishing a piece with us, send us your story idea or a first draft using the submission form below.

QUIZZES

Test what you know about other parts of the globe with our “Country of the Month Quiz”

Show what you know! Take our “Country of the Month Quiz” to demonstrate how much you know about other countries.

We randomly select a winner from the pool of eligible quiz takers* who score the highest on each quiz (*To be eligible, a quiz taker must be under 25 years of age and not a resident or citizen of the country
featured in that month’s quiz.) Winners will receive funky ND swag — and bragging rights!

Check back soon for our next Country of the Month Quiz or follow us on your favourite social media channels. You’ll be sure to see our quizzes promoted there.

Internships

Contribute to our dynamic team in a transformative internship experience

We accept internship applications from young people (aged 16 to 24) on an ongoing basis.

News Decoder interns support the News Decoder team in a variety of ways — writing stories, conducting research, building our audience on social media and helping with important administrative tasks. Former News Decoder interns regularly describe their internship experience as transformative.

We support virtual work arrangements and welcome applications from young people based anywhere in the world. No French is required for this position. Interns must be able to commit at least 10 hours per week over a minimum of a 2-month period.

PUBLIC WEBINARS

Digest, discuss and debate the big ideas affecting your generation in our next public webinar

We host webinars featuring experts and young people from around the globe. Our webinars tackle big — and sometimes controversial — topics that resonate with young people everywhere: climate change,
free speech, political movements, technology and more.

Sometimes, there is such a thing as a free lunch! In late 2021, we are launching a series of public webinars that are free and open to anyone. You simply need to register in advance to reserve your
(virtual) seat.

Check back here soon for further details on our next public webinar or follow us on your favourite social media channels. You’ll be sure to see our upcoming webinars promoted there.

YOUTH JOURNALISM COMPETITION

Enter your story in our youth journalism competition

In mid-2022, News Decoder will be hosting its inaugural public youth journalism competition. Young people aged 16 to 24 from anywhere in the world will be invited to enter their stories in the competition.

Up for grabs are cash prizes, ND swag and the international attention that comes from having your story published on a global news site.
