Do you want to level up your fact-checking skills? Join Rappler’s mentorship program

Do you want to develop a deeper understanding about the process of fact-checking? Are you interested to scale up your skills in spotting disinformation online and debunking suspicious claims? 

Rappler is launching its Fact-checking mentorship program where shortlisted applicants will undergo a 5-week exclusive and hands-on training on detecting, investigating, and verifying online disinformation with Rappler's fact-checkers.

This program is perfect for campus journalists, educators and community leaders who are committed to take a more proactive role in the fact-checking community by reporting claims, providing sources to help debunk, and contributing actual fact-checks.

We are accepting volunteer applications for this program until 5pm on Wednesday, October 28.

To qualify for the program, applicants must first have been participants of any previous fact-checking webinars hosted by MovePH, Rappler’s civic engagement arm. They must also be willing to work within the period of November to December 2020 through a remote setup. 

Academic institutions or groups which are involved in research, journalism or communication may also apply. 

A deeper dive on fact-checking

MovePH has been conducting a series of fact-checking webinars which focused on the methodology and processes of fact-checking, as well as how fact-checking applies in different thematic areas and issues. Since it started on April 3, more than 2000 participants have joined the first 16 sessions. 

To scale up the skills of the participants, the mentorship program will include training them with Rappler’s fact-checking team.

The Rappler team will guide them through the fact-checking methodology including the use of various processes and tools in fact-checking and writing about fact-checked stories.
