AAJA-Asia is committed to help its members grow and progress in their journalistic careers. We offer members a wide range opportunities to acquire new skills, learn best-practices and share their knowledge and experience by joining the AAJA-Asia training network.

At the annual New.Now.Next Media Conference, members have the opportunity to connect with mentors one-on-one for career counseling or resume advice, as well as participate in intensive leadership workshops to develop the soft skills needed to accelerate in the workplace. 

AAJA-Asia and the Google News Initiative have teamed up to provide free training workshops and outreach to journalists in Asia looking to apply the latest digital tools in their news gathering, reporting and storytelling.

AAJA-Asia also grants stipends to attend AAJA’s Executive Leadership Program for mid-career journalists and the National Convention in the U.S.

With nearly one-third of membership worldwide comprised of students, AAJA makes continued efforts to provide a holistic, sustainable cycle of career development and mentoring through student programs, fellowships and internships.
