Internews has trained young journalists and bloggers from all over Tunisia through a series of workshops on political talk shows, covering human rights issues through radio reporting, and investigative journalism in dealing with corruption. The training sessions were conducted in partnership with five radio stations (two public: Radio Le Kef and Radio Monastir, and three private: Mosaique FM, Shems FM and Jawhara FM).

A Training of Trainers has given six previous trainees the chance to return and improve their skills. Internews has also launched and hosted a website – Tunisia Youth Beat – which showcases the work of young journalists and netizens.
