Growing Up NYC's Summer Programs
City Limits' Youth Journalism Internship
Please note: due to safety concerns around the COVID-19 crisis, City Limits is preparing to operate this summer’s internship remotely if needed. A final determination will be made at a later date, and accepted applicants will be notified at that time.
City Limits interns will be trained in the essential tenets of reporting and news writing, including research, interviewing, investigative techniques, media ethics, story structure, photojournalism and more. They’ll get a chance to meet and hear from guest journalists as well as take field trips to professional newsrooms across the city (these will be conducted virtually, if needed). Participants will work on locally-focused news stories about important New York City issues, with the goal of getting those stories published in City Limits.

Dates & hours: Interns will work approximately 20 hours per week, from Monday to Thursday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Those who perform successfully in the program will earn a $1,000 stipend.
Eligibility requirements: Applicants must reside within New York City, and be entering either their junior or senior year of high school (11th and 12th grades) or their first year of college in the fall. They should have an interest in writing and current events, and should be curious about the world around them.
