    Overview

    The Yale Daily News Summer Journalism Program is a one-week intensive course in journalism for Connecticut high school students. The program is run entirely by undergraduate staff members of the Yale Daily News. 

    During the course of the week, the high-school students participate in workshops on the fundamentals of reporting and writing, attend lectures by guest speakers from major national publications, and work hands-on reporting a story. The week culminates with the production of an issue of the Yale Daily News.

    The program is limited to Connecticut residents and is geared toward those with writing or journalism experience, but any Connecticut high-school student with an interest in journalism, writing or photography is encouraged to apply. The program, which is free to all participants, lasts from 12:00pm until 3:30pm each day via zoom.
