About the Urban Journalism Workshop (UJW)

Upon successful completion of the workshop, Milwaukee-based participants will be eligible to participate in a month-long paid internship at a local news organization. Participating news organizations include the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Milwaukee Business Journal, the Milwaukee Courier, the Milwaukee Community Journal, and WUWM.

High school students: if you're ready to see what it's like to be a journalist during challenging times, join us for the Urban Journalism Workshop!

During the program, you'll learn how to use digital equipment to cover events, gain interview skills, and create journalism in a variety of media. You'll work in teams that focus on multimedia news gathering using your phones and iPad minis to record and shoot video.

Now in its 36th year, the Urban Journalism Workshop has offered aspiring journalists like you a sense of the real world of news reporting.
