City Limits’ CLARIFY (City Limits Accountability Reporting Initiative for Youth) internship program for the Spring 2019 semester will start March 2.
Meets: Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., ending May 11
Deadline to apply: February 18
This is a 10-week paid introductory internship open to New York City high school students of all learning levels. It will teach them the ins-and-outs of reporting and writing news stories, with an emphasis on learning how to successfully cover public civic meetings. Participants will work on articles throughout the semester and have the opportunity to earn a byline and see their work published in City Limits.
Interns will be expected to work up to 7.5 hours per week. This will include weekly three-hour meetings at City Limits’ offices in Harlem (8 W. 126th St.), plus additional assignments to be completed on their own time. Participants are also required to cover at least one public civic meeting during the course of the semester. Interns who perform successfully in the program will be paid a $750 stipend, to be distributed in two payments (one midway through the semester and the other at the program’s completion.)
The deadline to apply for CLARIFY’s Spring 2019 semester has passed. To inquire about applying for our summer internship, please contact Jeanmarie Evelly at (646) 693-4459 ext. 466, or email Jeanmarie@citylimits.org.
