Seeking students for a youth journalism class

The editors and reporters of the Norwood News and the Mount Hope Monitor are running a youth journalism program for Bronx high school students who are sophomores, juniors or seniors.

Classes will begin in September, and run every Wednesday for 12 weeks, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Students will learn the fundamentals of writing, reporting, and photojournalism through classroom instruction, and through hands-on reporting in their own neighborhoods. In past semesters guest speakers have included David Gonzalez of The New York Times, and Buddy Stein, the former editor of The Riverdale Press.

Student work will be published in a youth supplement called Bronx Youth Heard, which will appear in the Norwood News, Mount Hope Monitor, and Tremont Tribune.

For an application form, please call (718) 324-4998, or e-mail bronxyouthheard[at]gmail.com. The deadline for applying is Aug. 31.
