For students with a passion for storytelling, technology, or journalism there are a variety of awesome media apprenticeships in Senegal. Past Fellows have worked at (and in some cases founded!) community-based English radio shows, a multilingual student newspaper, and a community-based English TV show.

Talia, Shannon, and Shannon founded a radio show to increase accessibility to English listening material.
