Road Trips for Student Journalists

YWP's friend Mary Simons of Conversations from the Open Road is planning three trips this summer for student journalists -- NYC, Maine, Oregon & Washington. Find out more here! 
Conversations From the Open Road is a traveling student-journalism program for Vermont high school and college students that interviews people on the front lines of social justice issues. Mary Simons leads a crew of six students and a videographer to explore and meet people in communities struggling and acting against an economic-political-racial-cultural justice issue. Each student creates a journalism short and the collection is shown at film festivals and in communities and schools around the state. Applications due by May 1
