Grantee Spotlight: ICFJ’s Spanish-Language Multimedia Trainers

Monday, March 28, 2011

We are excited to support the International Center for Journalists’ new program, “Líderes Digitales: Creating a New Generation of Spanish-Language Multimedia Trainers.” This initiative will teach dozens of journalists from across the U.S. to train their own newsrooms in multimedia storytelling, emerging technologies, social media and visual techniques.
Participants were chosen from more than a dozen states, including large cohorts from California, Florida, Illinois, New York and Texas. Some represent Telemundo and Univision but others work for local news organizations and nonprofits.
The program begins with 57 participants, who will all take part in a four-week online course. At the end, participants will submit proposals for a multimedia project that will strengthen their communities
ICFJ will then choose 26 reporter trainers to attend a three-day boot camp on backpack journalism. From this group, eight finalists will be chosen to receive additional intensive training to become Spanish-language, digital-media trainers.
