Volunteer with NewsWise

Real journalists bring learning to life and help children understand how the news is made.

Journalist volunteers help us show how news is exciting and important, highlight its capacity to hold power to account and inspire the next generation of young news makers!
I was tremendously impressed by the level of enthusiasm shown by the pupils. They had obviously put in a lot of hard work and carefully researched their questions with great maturity and interest. It made participation in the session very rewarding and as with the best experiences, the benefit went both ways.

My pupils were absolutely gripped by our journalist who was both kind and engaging. Again, it made the whole thing more 'real' for them!
