“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.” – – Kid Reporter Parent


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

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 topic selection, 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.

The Youth Reporter Program workshops and summer camp for 2021 take place online and are open to all kids ages 10-15.
