Please note: due to safety concerns around the COVID-19 crisis, the Fall 2020 CLARIFY internship will be conducted remotely.
The fall internship will take place on Zoom twice a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. for nine weeks, starting Oct. 6 and ending Dec. 3.
This is a paid, remote internship opportunity for high school students and recent grads to work with City Limits, a nonprofit investigative news organization that’s been covering New York for more than 40 years. 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. Participants will spend four weeks working on locally-focused news stories about important New York City issues, with the goal of getting those stories published in City Limits.

Those who perform successfully in the program will earn an $800 stipend.

They should have an interest in writing and current events, and should be curious about the world around them.
