About this grant

This grant will provide support to the Washington Educational Telecommunications Association’s PBS NewsHour Student Reporting Labs to adapt journalism content focused on youth development practices and workforce skills as a premier partner with the Mizzen by Mott App. The curriculum will provide afterschool educators with easy to execute activities while developing youth voice and career exploration opportunities for youth. This grant will also support the engagement and marketing of the grantee’s Student Reporting Labs curricula to the afterschool field through a multimedia campaign to support the multiple rolling launches of the Mizzen by Mott App. This innovative content and partnership will support high-quality learning experiences for youth in afterschool environments and provide opportunities for youth to explore new career pathways.
