IndyKids Kid Reporter Program Workshop

Want to become an IndyKids reporter and have your work read by people all over the country and world?

In the Kid Reporter Program workshops, students are guided on an in-depth exploration of media literacy and learn how to become critical journalists. Working one-on-one with professional journalists, editors, writers and educators, students take part in every aspect of producing the IndyKids newspaper – from pitching, researching and writing, content production, interviewing, on-the-ground reporting, editing and finalizing their work for publication, and finally, distributing the paper to a growing, national audience of their peers.


Upcoming Workshops

Our next Kid Reporter News Writing Workshop is being held on Saturdays, March 18, 26 and April 1, from 9:30am-12:30pm ET. This class will is virtual. Registration is now closed.

Stay tuned for summer camp and Fall dates.


We also host podcasting workshops!

Listen to our Climate Crisis Podcast and examples of student work from our Audio Storytelling Camp (2020) to see what’s possible when kids participate in our audio workshops.


Most students who attend our workshops receive partial or full scholarships.

IndyKids Kid Reporter Program workshop

“I wish IndyKids could be in every community, it’s such a valuable resource! My child has developed critical thinking, writing, listening, public speaking skills, and more as a member of the IndyKids reporting team for almost three years. Indykids has helped reinforce the idea that “the news” is not something abstract- -it is for us by us; meant to be a part of our daily lives.”
