How to Intern
A Backpack Journalist ™ (www.abackpackjournalist.com) program provides educational and emotional support for youth, 12-18. We have experience with at risk and military youth, through the deployment cycle, including reintegration and have provided training on various media to allow youth to express themselves and help connect with their parents/family/other youth.
The curriculum of A Backpack Journalist provides youth hands-on experience, combining the basics of writing, photography, film making, songwriting, and poetry and gathering and reporting with the latest, greatest tech tools.
A Backpack Journalist uses lap tops with photo and songwriting editing, graphic and production software; portable, wireless networking; digital cameras and pocket camcorders and cell phones. CANON, USA provides our team with digital film cameras when we travel and need to film!
The core of the program helps youth develop their writing skills and expand their education, while underneath it also helps a youth find their “voice” and a means to express themselves. Encouraging creative expression through a variety of media applications has shown to be successful in the trainings to date and is one of the goals of A Backpack Journalist. Having fun, while learning, is utmost also. All program content is reviewed by a licensed psychologist.
