What's going on at Youth Journalism International

Youth Journalism International students across the world have been, as always, amazingly busy in recent weeks. From reports from the climate talk in Paris -- see this link, for example -- to reports from flooded areas of India -- there's not much that our intrepid young writers and photographers miss.

They surprise us often with the variety of material they deliver.

Here, for instance, is a recent piece by Frida Zeinali, a teen who lives in Tabris, Iran. She wrote about World AIDS Day.

And here is a story from Dallas, Texas about the museum at Dealey Plaza about the killing of President John F. Kennedy.

Or look at this one from the Philippines about a protest spurred by trade talks.

We are so proud of all they do and grateful that you have done so much to make it possible.

Take a look at the recent newsletter attached to this short report for more details. Don't hesitate to reach out to us if you ever have any questions, thoughts or concerns. We're eager to hear from you.

Students weigh in from around the world

We'll keep this one short and just give you a taste of what YJI's students have been dong lately.

Yesterday we published a firsthand account of the refugee crisis at the Budapest train station, where one of our new reporters took pictures and listened to frustrated asylum seekers fleeing Syria's nightmares. You can see her story here.

Just before that, we published a piece about a stunning Van Gogh exhibit at a small museum in Massachusetts. You can read that here.

On Monday, we had a news piece about how Nigerians are losing faith in their newly elected president. You can take a look at that one here.

We could go on easily enough, linking you to one terrific story after another, all of them available on our blog and, sometimes a little later, on our website.

But here's one from the archives that we urge you to search out now that we're all thinking about the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. At the time, we published a yearlong journal from a high school senior in St. Bernard Parish, just outside New Orleans, whose home flooded. It is an amazing story, full of grit, hope and hardship. It's easily one of the best things written about Katrina and if you've never seen it, you should. Start here.
