Journalism Program for Bronx High School Students

Bronx News Network is recruiting now for the fall semester of the Bronx Youth Journalism Initiative--a free journalism program for Bronx high school students. The next semester starts on Sept. 21, 2011.

Students learn the fundamentals of writing, reporting, and photojournalism through classroom instruction and hands-on reporting in their own neighborhoods. We take them on field trips including the newsroom of a daily newspaper. They will learn about community activism and civic responsibility, how their neighborhoods work (or don't), who has power, who doesn't and why.

Student work gets published in a special youth supplement called Bronx Youth Heard, which appears in Bronx News Network publications - giving youth a powerful voice.

We are looking for students of all academic abilities, but they should be highly motivated, love to write, be naturally inquisitive, and care about what's going on in their communities. Click here to find out more about the program or to download an application form, or call (718) 324-4998 and ask for Jeanmarie Evelly.

  1. Correct me if I am wrong, the Bronx, had given birth to a new newspaper, the Tremont Tribune in 2009.. isn't that correct that this newspaper was a product of the Journalism program?

  2. Jeff, the Tremont Tribute was created after the journalism program. It isn't a product of the program, although it has featured editions of the program's publication, which is called Bronx Youth Heard. The students produce one issue of Bronx Youth Heard during each session of the program, which runs two sessions each year -- in the fall and spring.
