Can you imagine a group of young people as reporters, editors, photographers and interviewers? Well, we can! And that’s why Youth Press Agency (YPA) exists - to promote active citizenship through the use of educommunication methods. With the help of our Education and Communications teams, adolescents and youth produce content to the Youth Press Agency online portal, covering different agendas from their own perspective.
Besides the virtual space, YPA offers trainings on communication tools and human rights, bringing together adolescents and youth from different parts of the city of São Paulo. The participants can also promote educommunication coverages and are encouraged to participate in communication campaigns. The YPA has an international branch which articulates young colaborators in ten countries, and the website is translated to both Spanish and Italian, besides Portugues and English.
