Update on Fundraising & How You Can Support Our Youth Journalism Program

As you may know, we're in the middle of our 2011 fundraising campaign, and so far we've been able to raise $1,920. If you have not sent your contribution yet, please consider donating today and help us raise $10,000 by February 18th.

Your support will help us continue our programs this year, which include publishing our newspapers, producing our blog, and running our youth journalism program.

Our youth program, the Bronx Youth Journalism Initiative, is now in its fourth year. Under the guidance of experienced editors and BxNN staff members, students learn the basics of reporting and writing articles. As few Bronx high schools have student newspapers or journalism classes, our program provides an important resource to high school students in the Bronx. Take a look at this clip from one of our first students, Andrew Boryga, a sophomore at Cornell University, who after completing our program went on to intern and write for the New York Times.
