Review for Youth Journalism International, West Hartford, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been involved with YJI for 16 years, since I was high school freshman. The writing, interviewing and editing skills and practice I gained at YJI at no cost were all priceless. In addition, YJI writers are currently in five continents, so it's easy to make friends worldwide.

Review for Youth Journalism International, West Hartford, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I continued to be involved with Youth Journalism International for my 15th year. YJI keeps getting better. I am amazed by the work these young people produce and YJI leadership's standards of high quality. At the last gathering in CT, one of YJI's members from London attended as well as an alum from Canada. Nothing else that I am involved with is as diverse as this nor does it have such dedicated leadership and members.

Role:  Volunteer & I volunteered at a fundraiser, I donated and I attended the gatherings.

Through the leadership and dedication of the YJI staff, I learned how to write well. I wrote many award-winning stories as a teen. Not only did I improve my writing, I learned how to interview all kinds of people even in uncomfortable situations (such as interviewing the parents of a teen who committed suicide). I earned college scholarships for my work.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the people and becoming smarter.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

among the the best people I have met in my life. They are genuine, down to earth and caring.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

be a big part in achieving world peace through its cross cultural connections and communications.

Ways to make it better...

all the international journalists could get together, even if for a day.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

not enough funding to do more.

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

I will be involved in YJI for life and if I ever get $, I will donate it to YJI.
