Youth News Network will be working with 6 to 9 youth and young adults from across Del Norte County who will be trained as multimedia community journalists for the purpose of amplifying the voices of Del Norte County residents, shining a light on disparities that exist within their community and having a say in how the community is seen and perceived. Stories will be distributed and made visible to the wider community via online and traditional outlets (print publications, radio and TV broadcast). The long-term objective of this initiative is to build a permanent and sustainable infrastructure for community journalism in Del Norte County that will serve as a source of local information for residents and policymakers alike.
