The New York Association of Black Journalists’
High School Journalism Workshop – First Take NYC is now accepting applications!
FIRST TAKE seeks talented teens from the New York City metro area with a
strong interest in writing and multimedia. This program has produced some of
the region’s best young professionals and we are looking for future stars.
Students accepted into this program will learn to write and report news, shoot
and edit video, plus produce a TV newscast.
Students will visit a working
newsroom in Manhattan and learn from guest speakers who work in the
industry. Those who complete the program will receive a copy of their work as
well as a certificate during a ceremony attended by two family members.
FIRST TAKE’s instructors and mentors include journalists from the Associated
Press, the New York Post, the New York Daily News, Dow Jones, Essence, and
more. The workshop is hosted by the Journalism Department of LIU Brooklyn.
