WYD opportunity for young reporters

Budding journalists are being given the fantastic opportunity to take part in this summer’s World Youth Day in Madrid

YOUCAT, the new Catholic youth Catechism launched this year, is bringing a team of young people to report together as more than 1.5million young Catholics join in celebration with Pope Benedict XVI.

Aided by high-level professionals in print and film, the chosen youngsters will report live from the Spanish capital and bring their experiences to those who could not travel to Madrid.

YOUCAT is seeking seven young people from different countries, aged 18-25, who are fluent in English to become part of their team.

For those interested in reporting in Madrid, a CV and short letter explaining your motivation for seeking the opportunity to report at WYD should be sent by email to Gudrun Kugler at: Any previously produced journalistic work can also be attached.

More information on YOUCAT can be found at the website: while further information on World Youth Day can be found by visiting:
