Our training strategy will focus on helping students develop skills needed to be successful journalists. We will create several programs that will be the foundation of our training module. These programs will concentrate on ethics, writing, investigative reporting skills and emerging media.
We also will provide training opportunities for established journalists. We are confident they will find value in our programs as they improve and expand their skill set.
FPJ will establish partnerships with media organizations and corporations in Alabama. These partnerships will be leveraged to promote the foundation and our strategic goals. Our partners will provide internships and help us identify training priorities. We also will develop partnerships with colleges and universities, offering our training to supplement their journalism programs. We will use these relationships to identify our prospects for internships.
A priority in developing future journalists and promoting the field of journalism is to provide practical experience, helping participants develop portfolios that allow them to pursue journalism careers. Our goal is to fund paid internships each year for college and high school students throughout Alabama.
