About this grant

This grant will continue to 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. Specifically, this project will support: 1) adapting PBS journalism content to be hosted on Mizzen; 2) direct engagement with educators to supplement SRL curricula, including virtual office hours for Mizzen users and participation in afterschool conferences; and 3) providing marketing and promotional support of the grantee’s SRL curricula to the afterschool field through a multimedia campaign. 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.
