High School Journalism Workshops

The Lee Caplin School of Journalism & Media offers a series of transformative programs for high school students, which are led by faculty, staff and academic advisors. In 2021, Dr. Karla Kennedy was awarded a $5,000 grant to fund a 3-week Journalism Jumpstart summer program for high school students from schools that do not have journalism programs. Twenty students participated in the event, which featured presentations from FIU faculty and local media experts like Nadge Green and Howard Saltz on topics ranging from “What makes a news story?” to using data as part of storytelling to producing broadcast news.
