Please see the attached PDF for the latest update from Youth Journalism International, which includes links to many stories as well as pictures and an insider's view of what YJI has been doing.
One piece of important news for those who live in the Connecticut or tri-state area is that YJI is teaming up with The Mark Twain House & Museum in Hartford to show the documentary "Linotype" on Thursday, July 26 at the museum's wonderful theater. It will be shown at 7:30 p.m., after a free ice cream social between 5 and 7 p.m. If everything goes according to plan, the grandfather of one of our former students, a former Linotype operator for The New York Times, will speak before the film. Admissions to the film are by donation to be split between YJI and the Twain House.
To keep up with what YJI is doing every day, you can check out our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/youthjournalism. Almost everything that our students do is also featured first on our busy blog at www.YJIBlog.org.
Generally, we are moving rapidly toward hiring our first paid staff member so we can begin to do much more for the hundreds of young people on our waiting list. Donations will have a direct impact on our ability to bring aboard more students, work with them and publish their work. They are, of course, greatly appreciated.
We are so grateful to all of you - and to GlobalGiving - for helping YJI grow and prosper. We are constantly frustrated that we can't do more, of course, but when we look back, we see so many helping hands who have made it possible for us to get this far. Thank you.
