AAJA VOICES Alumni Meet-Ups Held Across the Country


Select cities will be hosting networking events for VOICES alumni and prospective students in the month of February.

AAJA VOICES is a mentoring opportunity for college students interested in journalism to attend the national convention and take part in an intensive, online collaborative newsroom in a weeklong program. The AAJA convention will take place July 24-29, 2017, in Philadelphia.

Student applications for the 2017 program are due Friday, March 31. Journalists who want to mentor as part of the program can apply here.

The VOICES networking events around the nation intend to bring together students interested in journalism to hear about the program, area AAJA and journalism professionals and VOICES alumni.

We thank all of our AAJA chapter sponsors and generous supporters for making VOICES happen.
