Student journalists from around the globe will collaborate to provide news and information to high school newspapers worldwide, beginning this summer.

PEARL World Youth News—named for Daniel Pearl, the Wall Street Journal reporter who was murdered by terrorists in Pakistan in 2002—will feature work by students who complete an online-training and -certification program. The training program was established with the help of experts at The New York Times and Columbia University’s school of journalism.

More information on the PEARL Youth World News global news service is available from the International Education and Resource Network .

Teams of students in selected schools in Iran, Lebanon, Pakistan, the United States, and Uzbekistan have been named editors for the online service. The group of editors and reporters will be encouraged to work together on the reporting, writing, and editing of the contributions. Articles will be available to schools free of charge. Professional journalists will act as consultants.

“With an emphasis on unbiased reporting and respect for a diversity of views, PEARL World Youth News hopes to not only develop journalistic skills among students, but also broaden cross-cultural understanding and provide an important global youth perspective,” according to the news service’s Web site.
