City Limits is currently accepting applications for its CLARIFY (City Limits Accountability Reporting Initiative for Youth) internship program.
Start date: March 24
Meets: Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., plus ONE weekday newsroom session during the second week of May (exact date to be finalized with interns after the semester starts).
This is a 10-week paid introductory internship open to 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 approximately 10 hours per week. This will include meeting at City Limits’ offices in Harlem (8 W. 126th St.) for three hours each week, plus additional assignments to be completed on their own time. They will also be asked 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 $1,000 stipend, to be distributed in two payments (one midway through the semester and the other at the program’s completion.)
To apply, please complete and submit the application form below by March 16, 2018. For more information, contact Jeanmarie Evelly at (646) 693-4459 ext. 466, or email Jeanmarie@citylimits.org.
