FREE JOURNALISM WORKSHOP FOR TEENS!
BROOKLYN, NY – The New York Association of Black Journalists is now accepting applications for its high school journalism program, FIRST TAKE. Students will learn how to report and produce local stories in multiple media formats from New York City's top journalists.
The FIRST TAKE workshop has produced some of the region's best young reporters and we are looking for future stars for the upcoming Fall session. The eight-week program meets every Saturday from October 6 through November 17, plus the eighth session that is scheduled to meet on Sunday, December 2.
The program's instructors include professionals from The Associated Press, Dow Jones, the New York Daily News, the New York Post, the Huffington Post and more. The workshop is hosted by the Journalism Department of Long Island University's Brooklyn Campus.
We are seeking talented high school students from the New York City area who have a strong interest in pursuing journalism careers. Students will learn how to write news, how to produce a blog, how to shoot and edit video, and how to produce a televised newscast.
Throughout the eight weeks of training, students will meet guest speakers from respected news organizations. Past speakers have been from NBC, CNN, Essence, ESPN, the New York Daily News and CBS News. Also, on a special Columbus Day field trip, students will visit a live newsroom in Manhattan.
Students who successfully complete the program will receive digital and printed copies of their work to begin building their own work portfolios. Also, each student will be awarded a certificate during a brunch ceremony attended by their parents or guardians and workshop mentors.
