Young Journalist Program
The Young Journalist Program is for youth aged 14-19 looking to enter the field of journalism.
EXPLORE! DIG! WRITE!
This elite program allows Young Journalists to meet professionals in many fields of journalism, enabling them to ask questions and get the real scoop on what journalism is today as well as in the future.
Young Journalists will create a print and/or online newspaper to give them practical experience in writing content, editing, organizing and publishing content.
Using this content, the Young Journalists will create a portfolio that can be used to improve their chances of acceptance to the degree program of their choice.
