We’ve got a great way to get ready for Student Press Freedom Day (Feb. 24, 2022). This year, we’re launching the Student Press Freedom Day Boot Camp – a series of four skills-building zoom workshops to help student journalists develop important skills to report on and advocate for student press freedom! Students and advisers who participate in the four central training workshops below will receive a certificate and a LinkedIn badge.
Whether you can only attend a couple of these events or if you can attend all four, you’ll learn tangible skills from seasoned experts.
