In collaboration with a number of media organisations and renowned expertise, the annual training programme targets students aged 10 to 17 years old through a comprehensive training plan that contributes to increasing media awareness among the younger generation and introducing them to the concepts of journalistic and media work.
The third edition, which focuses on "content industry technicalities," got 51 applications from schools and youth-serving organisations. The club has scheduled candidate evaluation interviews for Sunday, where 20 students will be chosen from among the candidates based on criteria that ensure the students' interest in the subject of training and their readiness to guarantee the best possible results and benefit.
The Director of the Sharjah Government Media Bureau, Tariq Saeed Allay, underlined the programme's ambition to maintain its goals of creating media teams and refining their skills.
He expressed his heartfelt gratitude to Sheikh Sultan bin Ahmed Al Qasimi, Chairman of the Sharjah Media Council, for his unwavering support of the Sharjah Press Club's activities and his ongoing monitoring of the "Ithmar" programme, which is based on his efforts to promote media culture among young people and develop their media skills, thereby contributing to the development of their leadership skills.
