Young Voices Media Project July 6-17, 2020

Telling stories in a changing world

The world has changed dramatically in the last few months.  Have something to say about it? 

Come learn to report what’s going on in a FREE two-week journalism, story-telling and media literacy bootcamp. 

The 2020 Young Voices Media Project, Telling Stories in a Changing World, will provide high school and first- to second-year college students from Monterey County hands-on instruction on the basics of media literacy, critical thinking, journalism, and news reporting from professional journalists.

Students will pitch story ideas, conduct interviews, follow story leads and write/produce their own stories for Voices of Monterey Bay, an independent nonprofit news organization serving Monterey and Santa Cruz counties.

We’ll provide a fellowship of $400 to qualified students who successfully complete the two-week training! Deadline to apply is June 26. We’ll meet in person at the beginning and end of the workshop, and online in between. The in-person meetings will be held in accordance with Monterey County Health Department regulations to protect the health of the community during the pandemic.

July 6 to July 17, Mondays through Fridays
