Hey, High School Journalists: Yale Daily News Offers Summer Program

NEW HAVEN, CT —The Yale Daily News Summer Journalism Program is a one-week intensive course in journalism for high-school students. The program is run entirely by undergraduate staff members of the Yale Daily News. During the course of the week, high-school students participate in workshops on the fundamentals of reporting and writing, attend lectures by guest speakers from major national publications and work hands-on reporting a story. The week culminates with the production of an issue of the Yale Daily News.

The 2022 program will be held via Zoom from Aug. 16 to Aug. 20. from 12:30 p.m. until 3:30 p.m. EST Tuesday to Friday, and 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday. These times are subject to slight alterations.

The Yale Daily News Summer Journalism Program is free to all participants from New Haven Public Schools. We ask that all other participants pay $160 for their week spent with the Yale Daily News during the program. The News uses this money to help keep our newspaper free for all readers and fund various initiatives within our organization, such as reporting fellowships or financial stipends for low-income students on the Yale Daily News.

Please apply as soon as possible! Prices may increase in mid-July.
