Youth journalism International has provided me with something that has made me believe that i, a normal girl, can do wonders with what i have. up til now, YJI has been my life's greatest achievement. and no doubt, the organization has given me a lot of important information and is beneficial for both, its students and readers. i get from YJI, something that can never be obtained from anywhere else in the world! Luv u YJI!

Although it has only been a month, since i have joined Youth journalism international, Steve Collins, and Jackie Majerus; the editor and executive director, have excelled my expectations, by their polite and impressive ways of instilling the spirit of journalism. Their polite ways of telling me what to do, how to write, and communicate with the readers, has not only improved my writing, but has also given me a new hope. This organization has strengthened my hopes for the future. Not only me, but above 200 students from around the world have been provided with the same opportunity, and the doors are still open. Youth Journalism International is an organization that educates the young generation, to produce better journalists and photographers for tomorrow. The collective contributions of so many students coming from different cultures, results in the best journalism organization, for young people i have ever come across, with no doubt!

I joined YJI about a year ago, and have enjoyed every moment of working with them. Not only have they provided me a strong outlet for my writing endeavors, they have been the only volunteer writing group i have ever joined that actually has helped me along in the path of writing proficiency. They have offered the best constructive criticism at every turn, and taught me many things about writing that, without them, i still wouldn't know. Youth Journalism International not only provides young writers with a opportunity for exposure, but helps them along the way.

The Great!

I am a student recently joined YJI and I have already been hooked to it. Within the last few weeks, I have made friends with wonderful young people around the world and hear their stories. I hope that I can contribute a little bit to this exceptional organization in the future through my articles and illustrations. I also hope that more people will get to know YJI and help build it into a financially strong organization to provide even more young people with an opportunity to be heard by the world.

There is something different about YJI - the way it respects everyone, regardless of age, the way it always gets involved with as many people as possible, and they way the founders constantly keep supporting you. There aren't many places out there providing a platform for young writers, and this is what makes YJI unique - it is doing something different, and it is doing it brilliantly.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Improving my writing skills, and confidence, and giving me a place to try out something I couldn't else where on such a global scale.

Perhaps see if even more people can get involved and work towards increasing donations to keep it going!

Back in the old days, when YJI was still called the Tattoo and I was a high school freshman and aspiring writer, I joined the group because I thought it was extremely cool to hang out with real journalists at a real newspaper. It was one of the first times in my life I'd been treated as someone whose ideas mattered, and whose contributions were as important as others in the group. Steve and Jackie were wonderful mentors, and when they began to expand the group to include international writers, the quality of the paper only improved. Over the years, YJI has benefited not only me and my own writing skills and confidence, but has helped countless people discover the power of journalism to change their lives, and maybe even, someday, the world.

Youth Journalisim is the greatest thing that has ever happened to me. After some time Jackie and Steve are your god parents and all the memmbers are your sisters and brothers. We are family based on respect and understanding. We all share a common passion for writing which makes everything published a pure delight to read. They are real stories by real inspiring youth. Just like it was said about the British Empire the sun never sets on YJI. It is international in the true meaning of the world stretching from california to china. After writing for YJI about my idol HE WROTE ME! Being a part of YJI is a garuntee for respect and a heard voice.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I wouldnt change anything but it would be really nice if we can have groups in every country who meet to discuss issues in their communities & is can raise money so that one representative from every country can go to CT every year to meet Steve & Jackie

In any society or organization you may find yourself,your major priority should be the fact that you want to bring about a change and affect that area of yours positively.People around you must feel your impact, they must be aware of your existence. As a youth even the old ones who are still aspiring to achieve more success, you must not fold your hands until death fold them for you. The popular saying that "it is not over until it is over" is of great value in the sense that as a human being you must not be idle at any point in time."An idle hand is the devil's workshop".One of the most important and crucial factors in life is TIME and SEASON.As a youth you must know how to manage your time because time waits for no man. Laziness among the youths of nowadays in nothing to talk about.Young people derive more pleasure in partying,playing and the like forgetting that whatever we do today has a long way to go with our future.Writing is one of the best way you can use to equip and develop yourself intellectually,because it enables you to express yourself and as well impact knowledge into others. Beyond words of deceit, YJI in one of the international educative organizations you can belong to and your goals will be actualize.

The Great!

Youth Journalism International gave me the unique to share some of my interesting musical experiences in their online newspaper. It was wonderful to be both the subject of an article and to have the chance to relate my side of the story. Youth Journalism International gave me this very special platform to write my views and made me consider myself as a writer for the very first time. I am extremely grateful to be a part of this wonderful organization.

I began with YJI many years ago as a young writer introduced through a friend, this has over the years become an enveloping educational experience beyond any expectations. The dedication and learning provided by YJI to its students brings journalism to life for them, gives them the guidance and the motivation to write news, reviews, and articles on the world. Not just fluff but true journalism, of such caliber that Youth Journalism articles have won many awards including several I was part of. The dedication of Jackie Majerus and Steve Collins is immense. Their passion has brought about a whole new take on the world for me. I have met people from across the world, collaborated with them and made very close friends with several. I will soon be returning for my 10th visit, each time however long or short it is means so much. I am inspired and strongly support this organization into its future doing what they do best- journalism and educating young people and future generations. I am nearing completion of a novel that is being recognized across the world and has unbelievable contributors and support. The passion for writing has been boosted beyond my wildest dreams. I now have the where with all as does everyone, a second family and home, friends including some of my closest friends including one of my furthest close friends I spent a year with in my home in Canada, with me forever. I highly reccomend YJI and will support them to the fullest always.
