Join our Journalism internship in Romania and gain experience in magazine and online journalism. The articles you work on will focus mainly on Romanian culture and traditions, which means you’ll learn a lot about the country itself. This is a great way to add practical work experience to your CV, and grow your portfolio.
You’ll work under the guidance of experienced and passionate journalists. Make the most of your time with them, ask questions and take notes. They’ll show you what the day-to-day life of a working journalist looks like. You’ll also get the opportunity to teach through the journalism club we run at a local school.
You will be based in the ancient city of Brasov, and live with a local host family. Use your time with them to explore a different culture, eat traditional food, and experience local customs.

What will I do on this project?
You will work at a biannual cultural magazine in Brasov. As a journalism intern, you will work on tasks that include:
- Head up the English section of the magazine with your fellow interns
- Visit Romanian villages and interview locals for stories
- Contribute online articles to Voices of the World
- Run a journalism club with your fellow volunteers at a local primary school
At your Journalism placement in Romania, your work will focus mainly on the following:
Head up the English section of a local magazine
During your journalism internship in Romania, your main focus will be producing the English section of a magazine called Satul (The Village).
You will work closely with your fellow interns and local journalists to create content that is inline with the publication’s communication strategy. You will go out on interviews, write articles, and edit articles.
Visit Romanian villages to gather stories
As a Journalism intern, you will have the opportunity to visit one or more Romanian villages during your placement. This will help you get to know rural Romania and report on it.
The couple who started the magazine have travelled across the country. During their various journeys, they were touched by the richness of ancient Romanian traditions that still manage to survive, despite increasing globalization
You will interview mayors, teachers, craftsmen, priests, and farmers. You will research their way of life and struggles dealing with the modern world and determine how these ancient traditions have survived in urban life.
Contribute online articles to ‘Voices of the World’
You’ll also contribute to Voices of the World, an online publication for aspiring young journalists. This is a platform where you can express your views, engage in dialogue, and learn about others through topics that greatly affect us all.
If you are 25 years old or younger, you can also participate in weekly workshops and undertake assignments for Voices of the World.
Older interns can work as trainers and coordinators for the local young people involved, or the interns who are also participants. You can hold workshops, proofread, or edit articles and discuss ideas for articles.
Run a journalism club with your fellow interns
In order for you to use your skills to the benefit of the local community, we have started a weekly journalism club at a local primary school.
Under the supervision of our Journalism Coordinator, you will work with small groups of children once a week. You will help them create a small monthly newspaper.
The children are selected based on their English level and writing skills, photography, drawing, or computer skills. They then take on all the roles that are involved in the creation of a publication. Under your guidance, they become reporters, editors, proofreaders, photographers, and designers.
Who are our partners for Journalism in Romania?
One main placement is the print magazine Satul (The Village).
The magazine has been created and is edited by Adrian and Ana Andrei, a young couple with great vision. During their travels through the Romanian rural areas, Adrian and Ana were touched by the richness of ancient Romanian traditions that still manage to survive, having adapted to the increasing globalization. They decided to create ‘Satul’ in order to help keep alive the immemorial spirit of the rural identity with its many different manifestations in modern Romanian life.
Voices of the World
You will also be working with Voices of the World. This is a unique global journalism initiative from Projects Abroad that allows young people from developing countries to learn about journalism. It’s also a great opportunity to publish their work online and experience cultural exchange.
The project is currently working in Romania and Ghana, but we are planning to expand it to many other countries.
Where interns work
You will be based in the ancient city of Brasov. With its terracotta-coloured roofs, gothic spires, medieval gateways, baroque buildings, and pedestrian-friendly streets, it’s almost like a fairy tale come to life. Although it may seem quaint and almost old-fashioned at first sight, the city is bursting with modern hustle and bustle.
As a Journalism Intern in Romania, you will write for a magazine called Satul. You’ll be responsible for producing the magazine’s English section.
You will work in the Projects Abroad Brasov office.
Misurare il nostro impatto
Ogni anno, definiamo degli obiettivi specifici per ogni progetto e ci impegnamo per avere un impatto sostenibile e a lungo termine in ogni Paese. Ogni volontario e stagista contribuisce al raggiungimento di questi obiettivi, indipendentemente dalla durata del loro progetto.
Per documentare i progressi e i risultati raggiunti, elaboriamo un report annuale chiamato Global Impact Report. Scopri di più sui risultati raggiunti dai volontari, stagisti e dallo Staff di Projects Abroad. Leggi l'ultimo report.
Attività nel tempo libero
Fare volontariato in Romania ti farà scoprire il gusto unico della vita nell'Est Europa. Con una vasta gamma di attività, troverai tantissime cose da fare durante il tuo tempo libero.
Questa è la destinazione ideale per gli amanti dell'architettura, con splendidi edifici antichi che costeggiano le strade. Il Biserica Neagră è un esempio di impressionante architettura gotica, con i suoi muri in pietra anneriti a causa di un incendio che imperversò nella zona nel 17 ° secolo.
Non sono solo gli edifici che vale la pena visitare, ma anche le strade. In particolare, potrai girovagare tra le strade più strette in Europa! Nel fine settimana potrai andare in Transilvania per addentrarti nel Castello di Bran - la casa del leggendario Conte Dracula - visitare il Museo ASTRA e scoprire il magico mondo del folklore rumeno.
Avrai la possibilità di conoscere volontari e stagisti da tutto il mondo ed esplorare il Paese insieme a loro o autonomamente, se preferisci.
Sicurezza e supporto del nostro staff
La tua sicurezza è la nostra priorità. Adottiamo diverse procedure per darti il supporto di cui hai bisogno e per farti vivere il tuo viaggio all'estero senza pensieri. Lo Staff di Projects Abroad sarà sempre disponibile, 24 ore su 24, e ti aiuterà ad ambientarti a casa e all'interno del progetto. In caso di necessità, potrai contattarlo in qualsiasi momento.
