Though I have only been a reporter for Youth Journalism International for a short time, the experience is beyond my expectations. I am motivated to work on journalism at a professional level, all thanks to the great tips and comments from Jackie and Steve. What's more, YJI has become a community of aspiring students and journalists that I feel truly attached to. I know that if I travel to distant land, Jackie will be the first to reach out to local YJI reporters, who are glad to help me as I need.

When I think of YJI, I think of enthusiasm and gratitude. We are bound not only by the same passion but also by love and support. It is one of my best high-school decisions to be a part of such an amazing community.

At a time when young people are provided with fewer opportunities to meaningfully explore careers or find positive outlets for expressing themselves concerning serious issues of public debate, Steve and Jackie have created an invaluable resource to promote communication, positive self-expression and meaningful career advancement. Their passion for journalism and willingness to devote their time and resources to young people from all over the world is unparalleled. I wish there were more organizations like Youth Journalism International to push kids in the right direction.

Under the direction of Jackie and Steve Steve Majerus-Collins my son and friends during their high school years learned the value of jounalistic writing. It has served them well through their college years and now in their chosen careers. Youth Journalism International has never been so important for young vocies to be heard around the world.

In our global world, YJI allows students to connect who would otherwise not be able to do so. Furthermore, by having a global hub of journalists, people can read a global, honest and heartfelt perspective on matters small and large. YJI really does make the world smaller. Most importantly, YJI gives a chance to all budding student reporters, and helps them along the way.

Mark Twain says "Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime."
— Mark Twain (The
Innocents Abroad/Roughing It). These writers from Youth Journalism International let us travel the world. Thank you.

I was a pretty mediocre student with decent grades and average extracurriculars; however, YJI gave me the credentials and the confidence to become so much more than merely an average Joe. After YJI published my first piece, I found that some people actually liked my writing, and so I decided to burrow further into journalism. Today I have two international, one national, one regional, and two county-wide writing awards and at seventeen I became a published journalist for a newspaper here in Florida. I believe wholeheartedly that none of this could be accomplished without YJI, for YJI gave me the foundation not only stand on, but also to grow upon. The recognition I received from YJI gave me the springboard to launch into larger things and Steve and Jackie (the YJI co-founders) truly invested their time in me and believed in me to write important pieces. They fostered my love of writing and encouraged me in my writing pursuits. YJI is more than merely a writing organization- it has the potential to change student's lives. Please invest in YJI, they could help so many more students if only given the chance.

Though I have not been writing for Youth Journalism International(YJI)for long, I can definitely say that this organization has opened up so many opportunities for us young, inspired writers. I came along simply looking for a place to be heard, but found so much more. YJI has an incredible, hardworking, devoted staff who believes in us. It also has given me, personally, an opportunity to connect and build relationships with teens all over the world. Above all else, I found myself falling back in love with writing once again. While it feels great to begin to write as I please, YJI DOES need full time staff. The volunteers invest a lot of time and energy on us, and it is only fair to them AND us that they deserve a little something as well so they can better the organization.

I am a teen based in India and have been watching this organization closely. My brother is a reporter for YJI and I have seen him work with the organization. It is very beneficial to see so many young people from across the world interact with each other. YJI has been building a bridge between diverse group of people. Besides, the work done by its reporters is very interesting as it is different from usual stuff and written for teens. If provided with resources YJI can do a great job in spreading awareness across the globe.

I first found the Youth Journalism International newspaper by accident and have been a fan ever since. A teenager's outstanding account of the New Orleans disaster, a series of stories on teen suicide, an Afghan teen account of travel through the Khyber Pass, reviews of plays and music and many more stories led me to encourage my grandchildren to volunteer and write for Youth Journalism International. What an educational experience for them. They not only became much better writers and reporters but also they became aware of other aspiring teen writers from all over the world. They are able to write of their first-hand experiences with the help of the two Journalism editors.

The Great!

growing larger to educate and motivate more teens while retaining the sense of community among them

One thing I'd also say is that...

This is a unique organization. It educates young writers in a non-threatening atmosphere. It is also a great confidence builder in young people.
