Work With Us


Our media platform is always looking for young people (18-29) who want to write for us. We strongly encourage young people to pitch ideas directly to us.   

Journalism we’re looking for includes:

·       Commentary/opinion pieces on current issues related to young people

·       Investigative features

·       Interview profiles, with individuals or organisations with interests in young people and politics

We pay a basic rate of £50 per article but will pay more if the article includes interviews or more in depth investigative reporting.

Check out our pitching guide beforehand for a more detailed understanding of how to pitch and what we’re looking for.

Our editing team will provide everyone who writes for us with resources and support to further their knowledge of journalism, as part of our commitment to supporting young people’s political democratic participation. We recognise journalism is a significant aspect of a healthy democracy and young people’s ability to participate in it is essential.  


We’re always happy to hear from facilitators who would be interested in running our schools workshops. Please contact our administrator Bella Frimpong if you'd like to work with us.
