Review for Youth Journalism International, Auburn, ME, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

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

In the interest my grandchildren take in viewing and writing about their world.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make it larger, increase its funding, add staff and expand it to other physical locations.

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

IT helps teens to become writers and journalists and lets adults to share teen experiences and their views on many events shaping our world

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

Dedicated,dedicated and dedicated.They are knowledgeable patient and extremely helpful.

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

expand the cadre of world-wide teen journalists who communicate with each other and the public.

Ways to make it better...

The organization was larger, had more editorial staff and administrative help.

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

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.
