Please know we are closely monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak situation. Our utmost priority is the safety and well-being of our student participants, and we will make decisions based on recommendations from health and government authorities.We still encourage all students to apply for this AAJA program. Depending on the situation, while we may be able to continue as scheduled, we are also exploring virtual opportunities for the program. We may postpone this program until we have a chance to reschedule. We thank you for your interest.  
 

Now in its 29th year, Voices is a student fellowship program that provides aspiring journalists with career-ready skills to succeed in the continually-evolving media landscape. At its core, the program’s mission is to help a diverse group of aspiring journalists understand how audiences engage with them, how communities view the work they produce, and how they can understand the impact their work has. By nurturing relationships between students and professional volunteers, Voices also gives students the opportunity to tap into mentors’ networks and begin their own.
We are looking for journalism professionals who are interested in mentoring our students in their news project over the course of the summer, and who are interested in growing as managers, training students, editing, and helping students network.
The program this year will consist of remote summer-long project work that begins in May and culminates in-person in Atlanta for the AAJA National Convention from Sunday, July 28 to Sunday, August 4.
As a Voices editor, you will have the opportunity to:  
 

  • To guide student groups to pitch and produce a long-form story in one of five concentrations. 
  • To learn mentorship, people management, and project management skills 
  • To build lasting relationships not only with your students but other AAJA professionals
  • To attend the AAJA National Convention

 The story concentrations this year will be:
 

  1. Investigative reporting
  2. Features
  3. Audio
  4. Short documentary
  5. Other. (This is an open-ended category for students to pitch ideas.) 

 Our fellows from last year’s class have gone onto internships and jobs at news companies such as the New York Times, the Washington Post, Frontline, and more. Former Voices students and editors have become Pulitzer Prize-winners, documentarians, public relations professionals, broadcast anchors and newsroom editors. Above all, Voices is a community that lasts far beyond this one summer, a community that students will be a part of for a lifetime.
If you can’t be an editor this summer, but would still like to be involved, we are looking for lecturers and for meal sponsors this summer. If you are interested, please fill out this form.
Frequently Asked Questions:
What is covered as a Voices editor?
AAJA will your accommodations and food, as well as your National Convention registration. We are currently looking into covering transportation to and from Atlanta, but cannot guarantee this.

Yes. Many of our former editors have been programming committee members, speakers, and more. We love that the AAJA membership is involved in so many things. We just ask that you keep us in the loop on any obligations you have so we can plan accordingly.
