NAHJ Programs

The National Association of Hispanic Journalists is constantly adding to its list of exciting programs. They include:

*Three national events: 
   - Scholarship Banquet in New York which benefits the NAHJ Rubén Salazar Scholarship Fund and Educational Programs.

   - National Convention and Career Expo that brings together about 2,000 of our nation’s most influential Latino journalists, media executives, and key political figures to discuss and debate the state of the news media industry and issues affecting the Latino community. The NAHJ convention has earned a reputation as one of the country’s premier journalism conventions.

   - Noche de Triunfos Journalism Awards Gala in Washington, DC during Hispanic Heritage Month which recognizes exceptional journalistic achievement

* The Parity Project, NAHJ's flagship program, which serves as a model for the entire journalism industry when it comes to improving newsroom diversity and coverage of, as well as interaction with, diverse communities. This program involves NAHJ's work with selected English-language news organizations that serve large Latino communities, but that do not have a representative percentage of Latino journalists in their newsrooms.

* Professional development programs

   - National Convention workshops

   - Career Expo resume, clip, demo reel critiques

   - Regional workshops

   - Journalism awards contest

   - Online job bank  

   - Fellowship listings

* Student Programs

   - Student journalism workshops

   - Scholarships & internships, to dateNAHJ has given out a total of more than $1.6 million in financial aid to more than 580 aspiring journalists, since the scholarship fund began operating in 1987.

   - Convention Student Projects is an intensive one-week media training project for college students. The Latinoreporterdigital.org delivers constantly updated breaking news and information produced by the projects, which operate as a single newsroom. Student journalists get front-end training in the skills needed to create and distribute news and information in today’s changing environment. The students focus on producing content for the interactive website, and will also produce a TV newscast, “El Noticiero” and radio podcasts, “Radio Ondas”, that will stream on-demand over the Web. Students also produce two issues of a newspaper, The Latino Reporter. The project team will produce blogs, videos, slide shows and deliver news via mobile and social networking technologies, all while sharpening their journalistic skills.   

   - Convention Student Campus is designed for college students interested in learning more about the changing world of journalism in the early stages of their career development. Students in this program participate in intensive training, tours, mock press conferences and career-building exercises in classrooms, television studios, media outlets, the streets and neighborhoods of the convention city, and government or other types of institutions. The program also features workshops and seminars on journalism ethics, obtaining newsroom internships, how to make the most out of the networking experience at the convention, and on various ways to write a good story in this age of multimedia journalism. The faculty of journalism professors and professionals offers the students a real perspective on the working world of journalism and helps them gain awareness of their respective communities.
