Since 1977, the National Journalism Center has trained aspiring journalists in the values of responsible, balanced, and accurate reporting. Weekly seminars and on-the-job experience provide participants with the tools to become leaders in combating bias in the mainstream media.
Seminars include talks with prominent journalists and public policy experts, writing exercises, training in investigative reporting, audio and video training, and current events and policy discussions. Students are also provided a $1200 monthly stipend to put towards rent and transportation to their internship.
The balance of real-world experience and quality academic training provides students with a competitive edge in the job market after completing the National Journalism Center’s 12-week program. For more information on future sessions, please visit njc.yaf.org.
