What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Our motto since our founding in 1921 has been "a better press for a better world." We believe that journalism activities at the middle and high school levels not only prepares youth for careers in the media, but helps them be better citizens as adults - regardless of their career. Yet, journalism teachers may lack training and/or support to provide the best experience for their students. We aim to support these teachers and student journalists so that they can produce top-quality work and be better prepared for the world.
