— We Need Them, Now!

Youth on Assignment supports young journalists, podcasters, and filmmakers.

In a world where the pressures eroding journalism and freedom of the press grow each day, so does the need for brave new creators and truthseekers.

If we could adopt them, we would. Since we can’t, we can promote their work, offer incentives and awards (with money) provide technical training, create networking opportunities, and love them. The next generation of truth seekers and story tellers are the freedom fighters of tomorrow. Let’s hug them, give them a high-five, and add to their scholarship fund.
