A Gateway to Journalists for the Future NGO

Since the first days of its foundation, 2007, the "Journalists for the Future" NGO or JFF has been actively engaged in activities and initiatives in the fields of journalism, media, data analysis, copyright issue, IT security and alternative media education in Armenia.

JFF hold media-related trainings and implement research activities, publish specialized books and create experimental news platforms and come up with various public initiatives.

Vision: Sustainable Communication Network for Everyone 

JFF believes that a sustainable and secure future is possible in case everyone has the opportunity to communicate to any other. And here we go and try to contribute to the increase of users of online resources and formation of news literacy.

Years of Achievement 

Looking back at the past 11 years of our activities, we can confidently state: we always have followed our mission, and the knowledge as well as experience gained via self-education, practices and academic programs have shared with our Armenian colleagues, journalists, students, lecturers and CSO representatives, by implementing various initiatives. Over these years, with the support of small grants, we have organized dozens of events, attended by about 4,000 people. Our organization succeeded in creating a small library of JFF's books and studies, which can be accessed also online.

About JNews.am

Many people call us JNews instead of JFF, since for many years our team have been doing media and advocacy activities via JNews.am website, which was launched by JFF in 2008. It is a media support platform where we cover issues on media, freedom of speech, journalism and internet legislation posting also literacy and training information aimed to improve the professional skills of the media community. Moreover, it is a favorite platform also for the students since it enables them to publish their first stories in one of the website's sections entitled "Student's Eye". 

All our stories and researches published in the past are still in demand in the professional circles. This kind of repository has become possible thanks to the selfless work of the staff, partners and volunteers of the "Journalists for the Future". The website also contains media-related publications prepared by other media outlet.
