The Student Journalism Program targets high achieving high school leaders from diverse backgrounds and ethnicities interested in pursuing a career in journalism. The program serves to improve student’s written and verbal communication skills, digital literacy, investigative reporting, objective competency and more.
In alignment with WIPPS mission, the program enhances civic engagement among high school students, creates the next generation for news reporting in communities, provides marketable skills and college preparation. In addition, it mentors and equips young and upcoming journalist with tools to master writing or reporting about the news who would otherwise not have access to resources to guide them.
As participants of the program, students will get hands-on experience choosing story topics, finding sources of information, conducting interviews, and reporting on stories to be published and/or broadcasted. Media partners will not only help with story direction and training in media-specific journalism standards, but they will also pay students for published work.
The High School Journalism program provides an enriching environment with remarkable resources for students interested in Journalism. Currently, there is an on-going and active recruitment for high school leaders of diverse backgrounds and ethnicities.
