TEEN JOURNALISTS TELL THEIR STORIES
Our July 2019 Young Voices Media Project was held in Gonzales, California, where nine high school students from the Salinas Valley spent two weeks learning professional journalism and writing skills. See their stories below.
This project is generously supported by the Clare Giannini Fund, with additional in-kind support from Gonzales Unified School District.
