For the past couple of month, Your Local News has been working with some local students who are considering a future in journalism. The Explorer program is part of the Learning for Life initiative sponsored by Boy Scouts of America so Your Local News has launched a Journalism Explorer program. These are high school students who are interested in taking a look at opportunities in journalism as a possible future career and we are happy to be able to give them the opportunity.
We have had the first few meeting and are now introducing those students who have decided they want to continue with this opportunity. During the course of the program, they will have their writings shared on Your Local News’ sites and possibly in Walton Living Magazine.
