Bronx Youth Heard Accepting Applications

The Norwood News is now accepting applications for the spring semester of Bronx Youth Heard, a free afterschool journalism program for high school students who live or go to school in the Bronx. Students learn the fundamentals of writing, reporting, and photojournalism through classroom instruction and hands-on reporting in their own neighborhoods. They also go on field trips and hear from guest speakers, including working journalists and public figures. At the end of the course, student work is published in a special youth-focused newspaper called Bronx Youth Heard, which appears in 15,000 copies of the Norwood News, giving youth a powerful voice in their own communities, as well as a newspaper clip to add to their portfolios and college applications. Students will get paid for their published work and the program will reimburse for MTA travel. The deadline to apply is January 29, 2015.
