The Oregonian’s High School Journalism Institute

It’s been a while since I’ve gotten the chance to volunteer my time to a cause I care about (other than Muslimah Media Watch!). So I’m really excited to be able to volunteer for The Oregonian’s High School Journalism Institute! It’s a great program that aims to gives underrepresented students a chance to hone their journalism skills:

The institute is a collaborative effort between The Oregonian, Oregon State University, the (Medford) Mail Tribune, the (McMinville) News Register and the Oregon Newspapers Foundation to promote diversity in newsrooms of the future.

This is wonderful–we need more underrepresented voices in the media!

You can read the students’ work and their reflections on their experience at camp on the OregonLive blog. And read about the awesome time I had with them.
