I am not entirely sure I understand your question but I will give it a try.
If you are still a student or below certain age, there are youth organizations which provides internship to help youth see the world. In Canada, we have Canada World Youth which accepts public applications on a regular basis.
If you want to write or photograph for news or photo agency, you can submit your photos and articles on a freelance basis. Sometimes agencies offer funded assignments to elite contributors, you have to prove yourself first and some funded assignments are only awarded to the winner of a competition.
