Youth Media Producer Portfolio Update for the 2022-2023 School Year
PBS NewsHour Student Reporting Labs (SRL) is excited to kick off the new, 2022-23 school year with updates to its Youth Media Producer (YMP) program.
YMPs form the backbone of SRL’s award-winning program, offering educators and students nationwide strategic, one-on-one, industry support. Often YMPs host office hours with educators, students, and video conference into classrooms to provide professional and technical advice to students producing and working on their video news reports.
For the 2022-23 school year, the following YMPs will oversee different regions of the country and continue to support educators and students seeking to refine youth video content. All prompts, challenges, and submissions will be processed through StoryMaker and redirected to a YMP. We highly recommend signing up as an educator at Story-Maker.org.
Learn more about your YMP here & book some time to chat with them.
