Free Journalism Program for High School Students

The Bronx News Network, in collaboration with College Now, is running a free journalism program for Bronx high school students.

Classes will begin on Sept. 29 and run on Wednesday afternoons from 4 to 6 p.m. at Hostos Community College.

Students will learn the fundamentals of writing, reporting, and photojournalism through classroom instruction, and through hands-on reporting in their own neighborhoods.

We will take them on field trips, and they will learn about community activism and civic responsibility, how their neighborhoods work (or don't), who has power, who doesn't and why.

Students' stories and photographs will be published in our youth paper, Bronx Youth Heard.

  1. James: if you and your students were looking for a good story this fall, you might come over to Grace Outreach, located at 151st Street just a few blocks away from Hostos. GO runs GED and college prep programming for women only, and your students might enjoy learning about our evening students in particular - women who are working during the day but still come our way at night as they need that credential to move themselves forward.
