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.
