About this grant

This grant will enable the Pulitzer Center to develop and promote diversity, equity and inclusion; media literacy; and journalism content for afterschool programs. The final content, which will be distributed on the Mizzen by Mott app, will include lesson plans and activities designed to engage young people on global issues that foster curiosity and critical thinking. To help ensure quality delivery of the content, the grantee will create professional development resources for afterschool educators, including workshops, webinars and teaching tips. Based in Washington, DC, the Pulitzer Center works to raise awareness of underreported global issues through direct support for quality journalism across all media platforms and to provide a unique program of education and public outreach.
