Reporting with Real Impact
Training and Support
Corps members receive training to prepare them for the year ahead by world-class editors, technologists, academics and other supporters of the future of journalism, plus continued support and mentoring throughout their term of service.
Inspire a New Generation of Journalists
To help connect corps members to the community in a different way, our journalists are required to do a direct service project, which often includes middle or high school students. Through these projects, corps members mentor the next generation of journalists—and teach crucial skills and habits for all young people: listening, empathy, open-mindedness and intellectual honesty.
