Civic Journalism for Rural Youth is part of the National Writing Project’s family of youth publishing projects, all gathered under the Writing Our Future initiative.

Civic Journalism for Rural Youth invites...

Youth (13+) and young adults to investigate, write, record, and share the stories and issues you care about in your community.

Educators to support young people as they work towards researching and reporting on the issues in their communities. You will register your site location, create a group, and support youth in publishing their work to a broader audience.
