City Limits is currently accepting applications for its CLARIFY (City Limits Accountability Reporting Initiative for Youth) internship program for the fall of 2018.
Start date: September 29
Meets: Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
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 approximately 7.5 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 $750 stipend, to be distributed in two payments (one midway through the semester and the other at the program’s completion.)
The application period is now closed for the fall 2018 semester. For more information about the program, or to inquire about applying for the spring 2018 semester, contact Jeanmarie Evelly at (646) 693-4459 ext. 466, or email Jeanmarie@citylimits.org.
