Dominican Republic Graduates First Class of Community Communicators

Our Community Communicators Program concluded their pilot workshop in Dominican Republic on May 2010. The first 26 graduates learned how to create community media using written, electronic, and audiovisual resources. The workshop provided an overview of basic notions of traditional print, broadcast, and electronic journalism, as well as legal and ethical notions that participants must take into account when creating and reporting community news to a worldwide audience.

The first reports produced by this team explored topics of interest in their rural  communities, including English-language instruction, child and adult literacy, the rights of the children, teen pregnancy, innovative agricultural practices, marketing of locally-produced commodities, and sustainable ecological development.
