Student Advisory Board

Learn. Connect. Be heard.

The Student Advisory Board of the MIPA Youth Journalism Initiative serves as the voice of young journalists. Advisory board members exchange ideas about what is important to them and their peers. Members from around the country interact with each other in a private Facebook group where they share challenges, successes and tips with each other, as well as discuss current events in the journalism industry. Moderated by professionals with experience in journalism and advising student media, the group serves as a meeting place for members to connect and learn from one another.

Are you interested in becoming an advisory board member? We accept applications on a rolling basis. Apply now!  If you have questions, please contact us at [email protected]

In the past, members participated in special opportunities throughout the year. For example, the inaugural class of members participated in a press call with officials at the White House regarding the First Lady’s visit to China. Click the links below to read what members wrote after the call:

#YOUnited: Social media unites students in America, China and beyond

First Lady’s trip to China an opportunity for engagement, collaboration

The Common Core and International Education

Members also had the opportunity to be panelists in a live chat about journalism ethics during an online screening of the documentary “A Fragile Trust,” hosted by PBS.
