Who We Are

A Great Training
Opportunity For Students

The Telescope Campus Journalists Network (TTCJN) is a subsidiary of The Telescope International (a youth and student-development organization).

TTCJN has been set up, specifically to train, mentor and coach students as well as help them to gain real working experience whilst still in school. As they are being trained, they build professional portfolios as well as professional networks for themselves. TTCJN achieves this by working hand-in-hand with its sister organization, The Telescope Training and Mentorship Academy (TMA).

When a student signs up to become a member of TTCJN, (s)he is first taken through a training programme by The Telescope TMA and after the training, TTCJN takes over the development, mentorship and coaching, and helps the student to practice and build portfolios under the guidance of highly experienced mentors

In short, The Telescope TMA is for training and TTCJN is for practicals, experience gaining and portfolio building.

Our aim is to groom the students and make it possible for them to overcome the challenges that graduate unemployment presents. We focus on:

Students get trained and receive mentoring in all six focus areas, and they also get the opportunity to gain working experience in each of them as they build professional and networking portfolios for themselves.

We don’t just train. We mentor and groom each Telescope (trainee) to become a competent professional. We have some very seasoned and experienced mentors and coaches.

Our training programmes have real projects to help Telescopes to gain real working experience. Telescopes can even form business partnerships with the Telescope organization itself.

We train our members to be also concerned about global issues and we groom them to be selfless and patriotic – to be always willing to tackle global issues and make positive impacts.
